We have had a very exciting day in Willow Class today. We had a visit from Joe who works at Rand Farm Park. Joe has brought us 7 chicken eggs and an incubator so we can watch how the eggs will change and fingers crossed in three weeks some chicks will hatch!
We will post daily updates on this page so please keep checking to see our updates!
The chicks have arrived!!
What a great day! After all our waiting we finally have 4 chicks. The first one arrived at 4:30 yesterday afternoon and the rest arrived during the night and first thing this morning. It has been amazing to see the chicks hatching and how quickly they have changed into fluffy chicks! We have all had a gentle stroke and love listening to them all cheeping in their new home.
Check out our pictures and video of when our first chick appeared.
Today was a very exciting day in Willow Class. We very patiently waited for Joe from Rand Farm to come back and see if any of our eggs had any chicks inside them. We wondered how Joe would be able to tell us as we have been looking at the eggs very carefully and have not been able to see any signs of chicks. Joe arrived just after lunch and brought with him a special light which he used to shine on the eggs and we were able to see a chick growing inside. This was very exciting! We had 7 eggs in our incubator and 6 of them have a chick inside so hopefully next week we should have 6 chicks.
When we arrived at school this morning we noticed that all the water from inside the incubator had gone! We lifted the lid and carefully refilled the water compartment. Whilst we had the lid removed we took today's photograph. Well done Robyn you took a great photo of our eggs!
We have had a good look at the eggs today and have decided that we can definitely see more spots appearing on the shells. We are looking forward to seeing what changes occur over the weekend!

We needed to top up the water in our incubator today. Mrs Kennedy very carefully lifted the lid and used a pipet to gently fill the water compartment up. The eggs have been happily turning in the incubator and we have now got used to the noise!

After careful observations we have decided that the eggs have developed some small spots. We have noticed that the incubator is gently turning the eggs to ensure they are all keeping warm.
