Today the eggs have arrived! We are very excited and can’t wait for them to hatch. We have had to learn how to look after them in the incubator. We think they will hatch on Wednesday but we will be blogging every day for the next 2 weeks with pictures and videos.

The eggs have not moved. They are keeping warm,the chicks are growing inside the eggs.
The whole class decided that we should tell you that today one of the eggs has been moving! We know that this is a sign that the egg will hatch very soon. Keep watching !!

Today some eggs cracked and 3 chicks came out.
They are cute.They keep saying cheep cheep!
Day 4 ( what a surprise!)
The whole class wants to tell you that when we came into school this morning, there were nine fluffy chicks running around the incubator !
Today we put them in a bigger box ( a brooder) and we fed them and gave them water to drink. They seem very happy. They keep falling asleep as they are walking around ! They are very funny to watch.The children love to sit and watch the brooder, better than the tele!
The sad news is that the 10th chick did not hatch, it is sad but that’s how life goes, bless.
Today we got to know the chicks a little better. We had to clean the brooder (ooh! poo! ) so we put the chicks on our carpet and we all held a chick , they seemed to like being held and some fell asleep on our knees! Year 2 came to visit and they held the chicks too. We think the chicks were very tired after that as they went to sleep in their nice clean brooder. Have a great weekend chicks, see you Monday.
Today we sat in a tight circle and put the chicks in the middle of us to run around. We looked carefully at the chicks and talked about the things we liked about them. We noticed that the chicks have changed. They have grown real feathers on their wings and some of their fluff has gone. They have started to flap their wings and jump, they seem to be trying to fly! This made us laugh, as did the poo! ( ah, well!)
