How does the incubator act like a mother chicken when providing an optimal temperature for the egg?
~Well, believe it or not, that is the optimal, I just threw a vocab word in there, temperature for development, oh there's another vocab word.
~Since we don't have a mother chicken in our class we use something called an incubator, if you want to see one just scroll down a little bit to the labeled picture.
~ To make sure all the baby chickens hatch the incubator must pretend to be a mother chicken. The incubator heats up to 99*F and stays in that temperature for 21 days! Could you survive that?
