Hatching Chicks - Day 1
The Chicks Have Arrived!
Day 1- Tuesday 7th May 2019
After a long Bank Holiday weekend, pupils were greeted with 10 eggs from the Living Eggs Company.
The day had been very exciting as we could see the eggs moving and hear the chicks pipping at there shells. The pupils have spent the day learning about the development of the chicks and trying to see how many male and females will hatch. They also learnt about why the incubation process is so important and the stages of growth the chicks are currently at.
Then... the big moment started to happen, when all the pupils had left for the day (just typical) - the first chick made its appearance, shortly followed by the arrival of a second chick.
Hopefully the rest of the chicks will stay in their shells tonight to allow the pupils to observe the hatch tomorrow.
