CMS students hatch baby chick

Campbellsville Middle School students recently witnessed the birth of a baby chick.

 

In Amy Knifley’s eighth-grade science classes, students have learned about how baby chickens are born.

 

Knifley placed several eggs inside an incubator to let students see the process. Each day, students checked the humidity and temperature inside the incubator.

 

With help from student teacher Jessica Hogue, students also got to see and learn about silkie chickens, which are often exhibited in poultry shows.

 

The first chick hatched on Wednesday, March 8, and students observed the chick – named Gogo – for the following two days.

 

On Friday, several other chicks were brought to CMS to keep Gogo company.

 

Gogo and the others went home with Hogue on Friday, March 10.

 

CMS students counted the days until their baby chicks hatched.
