What a surprise the children had this morning when they came into class - 8 baby chicks had hatched during the night! We think 6 are girls (they are brown) and 2 are boys (yellow chicks).
The children have enjoyed watching the chicks this morning. Pipping (pecking out of their shells) was hard work - the baby chicks are sleepy and need lots of rest. We are leaving the chicks in their incubator today as they dry off and become fluffy. We are still watching the other 2 eggs that have not hatched yet - one has had pipping and cracks emerging, so hopefully there will be at least one more chick... Watch this space!
