Living Eggs Chickens March 2015

In reception class we have had some embryo eggs in incubators. The children have been able to watch over a two week period the hatching of these eggs. The chicks were then moved to a brooding box. This is specially designed and comes complete with heat light, bedding, feed and water. There are large viewing windows which enables the children and teachers to easily observe and handle the chicks.
