At last, here is the complete story of our pheasant hatching journey. We got the eggs from the Wildlife Federation, a local group that raises the pheasants, and then releases them into the environment in the fall. (The kids in my class next year will get to help with the release.) Although 22 eggs hatched before we sent the stinky incubator away (birds that have hatched have an annoying habit), they all chose to hatch outside of school hours. The children did not seem to mind this, as they were quite enamoured by the babies and proudly showed them off to other classes in the school. Check out the Bubbleshare below to see some of what happened.
