Using a sharp “egg tooth” on its beak, each chick starts to “pip” (peck) the inner shell membrane on day 19. The chick breaths air in side the shell and makes it’s lungs stronger. in the next two days, the chick will pip the outer shell thousand’s of times.

Answer Key:

Chicken eggs take 21 days to hatch. Their home is an incubator, which keeps the air warm and moist. Using a sharp “egg tooth” on its beak, each chick starts to “pip” (peck) the inner shell membrane on day 19. The chick breathes air inside the shell and makes its lungs stronger. In the next two days, the chick will pip the outer shell thousands of times. Finally, the shell will break completely, letting the chick out.
