Hatching Chicks!

We have had a very exciting week in Holly and Cherry...our eggs which were in the incubator began to chip away at their shells on Tuesday. The first chick hatched early Wednesday morning and all the eggs had successfully hatched when we came to school on Thursday! We had to keep the chicks in their incubator for the first 36 hours to allow them to dry out and fluff up. We moved them to their heat box on Thursday morning, so they now have plenty of room to scratch and explore! This provided lots of opportunities for conversation, discussion and early writing amongst the children.
