Chickens: Hatched and Raised in New York City

Fifteen hens made the trip from the Queens County Farm Museum to the South Bronx on Monday to take up roosts in a volunteer-built coop in Brook Park. These chickens were part of a program at the farm that allows city school kids to incubate eggs and watch them hatch.

My Pekin duck, Dorothy, spent her July sitting on four eggs she had laid. This is the first hatchling not long after emerging from its shell.

Newly Hatched Chicken / Chick Hatching From Egg

Watch a baby chicken hatch from its egg. The video is about 4 min long and worth the viewing. Nature at is best. Farm life living at Reid Ranch Farm.

#2 – Chick Hatching…One chick hatched. Second chick hatching. Eggs pipping.

One chick is running around while the second chick works on getting out of it’s shell. Note the egg at the top and far right behind the hatching chick. You will see it’s little beak poke a hole on the back right side of it’s shell!
