Happy Birthday Peep!

As part of the science and environmental education program, thirty-six Ameraucana eggs have been incubating since April 26. The first chick hatched today! The children voted to name the newest member of the Morgan Academy family. Please welcome Peep! He/she is fluffy, cute, and weighs 4.5 ounces. The children and I have been using stethoscopes to listen for movement from the remaining eggs. There should be more baby chicks by tomorrow.
