Thursday (day 4) - this morning four chicks were moved into the brooder.
This afternoon 4 more chicks have been moved into the brooder.
Monday 9th May was day 1 of our egg-citing egg hatching egg-sperience!!
So far, not much to see! The eggs are kept at a constant temperature and we will hopefully see some action soon.
So far, we have been distracted and mis-led by the noise of the starlings who are nesting in the eaves of our classroom. Every morning, we come in eagerly to take a peek and see if anything has happened - maybe tomorrow!
Some of the children have made predictions about when they think the first egg will hatch - Watch this space!!
Wednesday 11th May
