Chicks

16.03.21 - As we entered our classroom this morning, we noticed we had a new arrival - an incubator full of eggs. We have had lots of discussions today about what might be inside the eggs. As we were getting our home time things ready, Rory spotted that one of the eggs had a small crack in it...

17.03.21 - The children were very excited this morning, to discover our first chick had hatched out of it's egg. During the day, they were also lucky enough to see the second chick hatch. I wonder how many we will have by the morning...

18.03.21 - This morning we came into the classroom to find 7 chicks. One hatched around 6pm last night and Mr Clark saw, 3 hatched over night and one was around 7.30 this morning. Today, we moved the two chicks that hatched first into the brooder box. We discussed the light in their brooder box and how it gives them warmth. We also spoke about their food and water - the chicks need feeding twice a day. Some of us showed the chicks pictures, whilst others read them stories.

19.03.21 - So, at the end of the week, we have 9 chicks to look after. All 10 eggs hatched, but one chick had poorly legs (splay legs), so Phil from the farm came and collected him. They will look after him and try and make his legs better. The chicks are staying with me this weekend - they are very noisy!! They are looking forward to strokes and cuddles from you guys on Monday. Happy Weekend :)
