Alexa and Skyler, Sumter County Middle School FFA members were the first to check the Ag. Class Incubator on day 21, and the chicks were hatching right on schedule. Several students “adopted” an egg before it hatched by writing their name on the shell.  Some were happy with the results, and some were disappointed. Nature is a wonderful thing, and like with the incubator, if you successfully control the temperature, the humidity, and the constant flow of electricity, you can predict the outcome! A solid education, employability and team building skills will help to create opportunity for a successful career!


The Agriculture students also learned that the poultry industry serves as one of Georgia’s top ten commodities!  Chicken eggs, broilers, and chick production create thousands of jobs for our economy.
