And here you thought those of us in the city didn't know which came first. Well, now we do.
Is this a common school project? I have no idea, but Tsia's preschool is hosting 12 little eggs this week. Farmer Albie brought his gorgeous bantam chickens to tell us all about eggs, and he's loaned us a dozen to incubate. Every day we turn the eggs, and when they hatch (I hope) next Monday and Tuesday we'll care for the little chicks until it's time to go back home at the end of the week.
I'm not sure who's more excited: the kids or their parents. But I suspect we'll be sad to see our little friends go home next Friday.
And by the way, they come at the same time. The chickens come in a little cage, and the eggs come in an egg carton, all set to nest down in the incubator. So that settles that question.
