PM Nursery - 'Sky' (green dot)
RC - 'Spike' (red dot)
RS - 'Buttercup' (purple dot)
1P - 'Sunshine' (orange dot)
1J - 'Custard Cream' (pink dot)
2NP - 'Ginger' (brown stripe)
2M - 'D J Quack' (purple stripe)
8 beautiful fluffy chicks move into the brooder. The chicks quickly find their food and water. Do you think they are enjoying the extra space?
5 chicks hatch overnight and 2 more are pipping!
9.30 another chick arrives that makes 7 chicks.
Chick number 8 looks ready to hatch!
9.00 am no sign of pipping but if you listen very carefully you can hear chirping!
9.20 am the children in the library phonics group hear chirping and a crack!
9.50 the first chick hatches!
Look carefully can you see this egg pipping?
Our Living Eggs inspire these artists to paint chicks inside their eggs. Fantastic artwork!
No sign of pipping as yet, but it's wonderful to have so many visitors!
The eggs arrive!
There are 10 eggs in the incubator
