Using their special incubator the children monitored the temperature and kept a record on their chick chart, counting down the 21 days to arrival.

Catherine Armstrong, head of the Nursery, said: “All the children found it fascinating to see the tiny chicks tap their way out with their beaks and emerge from their shells. They have really enjoyed watching them grow and were delighted see them become strong enough to handle last week.”
