Hatching Chicks May 2022

The Hatching of Chicks!

On Tuesday 10th May 2022, 14 eggs arrived at Our Lady of Peace. Prior to arriving at OLOP the eggs had been incubated for 19 days.

On the morning of Wednesday 11th May 2022, our first little chick hatched and the other chicks soon started to follow. By the morning of Thursday 12th May 2022 we had 14 beautiful little chicks.

The chicks remained in the incubator until they were dry and fluffy and then moved to a special brooder box where they will stay until Friday 20th May 2022.

The children and staff in Early Years will look after the chicks, making sure they are happy and healthy.

Watching these little chicks hatch has been very exciting and Early Years have had many visitors from around the school coming to see them hatch.

The children will be writing and drawing about this unique experience and will be learning all about life-cycles.

If you would like to learn more about where our chicks come from and where they will go after they leave our school you can visit the Happy Chick Company website. https://www.thehappychickcompany.co.uk/
