Reception chick update!

Reception class have had a very exciting week watching our chick eggs hatch and grow. On Wednesday afternoon 1 more egg hatched to see the children off for hometime.

When we arrived at school on Thursday morning 2 more eggs had hatched overnight, giving us 5 chicks in total. Thursday was a very busy day as 3 more eggs hatched before our very eyes. By Friday, we had 8 happy healthy chicks cheeping away in our brooder box. Unfortunately 2 eggs did not hatch. We discussed this with the children and they understood why this may have happened.

We have been learning to care for our 8 chicks making sure they have clean bedding and plenty of fresh food and water.
