10 Hatching Chicks – Year 2

Early one morning, we had a special delivery of 10 fertilised eggs. We watched and waited for two days and then the first egg began to crack. The chick had to stay in the incubator until he was all fluffy and until another chick had hatched. Then he and his friend were moved across to the brooder box. They were very noisy when they were awake, but they did keep nodding off! Two days later all 10 eggs had hatched with Wobbly being the last chick to hatch. When they were strong enough, we took them out of their brooder box and held them. Some fell asleep in our hands. We learnt so much about the life cycle of a chick, a chick’s habitat and how to care for a chick. After two weeks, the girls went to Boydells Farm and the boys went to a free-range farm in Northampton.
