How a Chicken Hatches 1st grade

Eggs are incubated for 21 days. They must be kept at a temperature above 86 degrees.
The chick will use its egg tooth to break the shell. The chick will start by making a small peck and will continue to use its egg tooth to break the shell.
The shell is breaking apart.
The chick will use its feet to push the shell apart.
HOORAY! The chick is out of the egg. Leave the chick in the incubator for 24 hours. He is very tired.
Chicks dry off and are covered with downy feathers. Happy Chicks!
