Chicks update!

Last week we reported on the clutch of baby chick eggs which had arrived in the Prep School.

The children have been fascinated to see the little chicks hatch (it takes a while to break through the eggs’ shell, and looks like hard work!). They have also observed how the chicks need a bit of time to rest and let their downy feathers dry out and fluff up before they venture out and learn how to drink from the water bowls and find their food. The pupils have taken turns to handle the chicks, too. Here are some of our Year 1 pupils – they were being very, very careful and gentle!

Chicks have arrived!

A clutch of baby chick eggs arrived in the Prep School earlier this week.
There was plenty of excitement all round – and now the eggs have hatched it is even better! All the Prep children will have the opportunity to see and handle the chicks up close over the coming week. Watch out for more pictures…
