All the children have been so excited to watch our chicks hatch.
We have 10 chicks to care for now!
Jake from Year 2 was so impressed with our chickens, he went home and decided they needed a better house.
Working with his Mam and Dad, he produced a chicken mansion, with it’s very own garage.
I feel a new career is ahead of him.
On Friday we all had a tear in our eye when we said goodbye to our chicks.
The school has buzzed with excitement watching them come out of the eggs and start to grow.
We know they are going to a good home and look forward to seeing them again in a few months when they come back.
Well number SIX has made an appearance.
We can’t believe how well they are all doing and can’t wait to see if the other four eggs are ready to hatch.
The incubator is becoming a bit full, so we have moved our first three boys into the brooding box, so they can start tucking into the chicken crumbs and give the new TWO chicks a chance to get themselves sorted.
While the children slept, the eggs were still busy!
We had 2 new chick by the time we all arrived for school this morning and yes, one of them is definitely a girl!
Just as the children left school last night, our third chick made its appearance – all three are boys – we have our fingers crossed for a girl.
Well, Chick Number One was only on its own for about an hour before Chick Number Two made an appearance.
Yet to be named, but more than happy to join our family, we await the next arrival!
As you may have heard….we have 10 eggs at school and the excitement is building waiting for them to hatch.
But half an hour ago our first chick was welcomed to Marsden – named Superchick, we hope that the rest come out to join soon.
Watch this space!!
