Hatching in progress

'Chick it out'

On Monday we had a delivery of  7 eggs to room 4. The eggs were in an incubator and the farmer told us there were baby chicks inside each egg. 

We spent the rest of the day waiting for the chicks to hatch ... 

Eventually we spotted a crack in an egg and realised the hatching process had begun! 

The next morning we found 4 chicks in the incubator. They had hatched over night. 

We saw the empty shells and talked about how the chicks must have curled up tight inside. 

We noticed that two of the other eggs had cracks in them so we kept a close eye on them. 

This is what happened next ..
