In Reception we have been very excited to welcome eggs to our class. We have written questions about the eggs and the chicks that are inside.
When the eggs first arrived we had to keep them in an incubator. One of the eggs started to 'pip'. That is when a chick uses it's special tooth to break through its shell.
When all of our chicks had hatched we put them into the brooder box with a heat lamp, food and water. They grow very quickly once they have hatched!
