The Chicks!!


On the first day back after half term, Class 16 received a very special incubator with 10 eggs. We had written to the Happy Chick Company asking for their help as we had lots of bugs destroying our vegetables in our they sent us the 10 eggs.

On the Tuesday, we could see one rocking from side to side and by the Wednesday the chicks had hatched. The children were very lucky to watch one chick actually hatch from their delicate shell. They looked very wet when they hatched out and we could tell that they were exhausted as they were lying on the floor of the incubator. After a few hours, the chicks were cheeping away and jumping on each other!

We had lots of fun holding the chicks and looking at how much they grew over their week with us.
