As the day drew near for the chicks to hatch the incubator was monitored carefully by both the students and staff. There was great excitement on Wednesday when the first cracks started to appear and the little cheeps could be heard from inside the eggs. Overnight most of the eggs hatched and we arrived in school on Thursday to hear the lively baby chicks cheeping happily. We recorded the last chick hatching in school that day. There was great excitement and wonder on Friday as the children had a chance to pet the chicks and some even held them. Nore Valley Farm came to collect the chicks a few days later. We’ll miss the cheerful cheeping sound of the baby chicks but we’re delighted to have been part of the whole experience.
