Facebook Live Chick Hatching and Hatched Cams- April/May 2021
You guessed it! For the 3rd year in a row, we are partnering with Madison County 4-H Youth Development and hatching eggs live! You will get to see the babies hatch and see them in our hatched cam as well-all done on Facebook Live! The eggs go into the incubator the weekend of April 23 and should hatch the weekend of May 14, 2021! We will have events on Facebook Live of putting the eggs into the incubator, candling events while they grow and then the biggest and best event, watching them hatch mid May! Mark your calendars today!
FACEBOOK LIVE EVENTS!
Friday April 23 at 7:00pm– Watch as we place the eggs in the incubator and learn a bit about the process
Friday April 30 at 11:00am– Watch as we candle the eggs for the first time! See how they are growing inside the egg!
Friday May 7 at 11:00am– Watch as we candle the eggs for the last time! See how much they have changed since the last candle a week ago! Last chance to see them before the hatch!
Friday May 14-Saturday May 15– We will go live as soon as we see the first pip in an egg! We will remain Live the entire time (technology permitting) and we will restart the feed every 4 hours, 24 hours a day until the chicks are hatched! Then view our Hatched Cam after to see the baby chicks as they get used to their new surroundings. Depending on where we are with COVID numbers, we may allow viewings of the babies by appointment so check back!
