Poultry Science at LHS

Part 2 of our Poultry STEM projects began(hatched) last night and this morning. Students will weigh chicks and begin feed conversion trails with different protein percentages. They will also be measuring growth rates for several other factors including: day length, hand feeding vs. free choice, male vs. female and confined vs. free-range.

Part 1 was studying embryo development. Students tracked and charted embryo development by candling eggs throughout the 21 day incubation period.
