Living Eggs Day 5

Day 5 is now over and it has been another very busy day indeed, ending with 9 healthy hatched chicks. One egg, unfortunately showed no signs of hatching. Many children were very lucky and witnessed at least one hatching and some have already actually handled and stroked the chicks. All the chicks are now housed in our brooder box, kept warm and with food and water, and some have visibly grown, even in 24 hours! The chicks also now have a special treat – a weekend away at Mr Walsh’s house!
