We had a little hatchery in our school just outside room 3 and 4 for the last few weeks. The boys and girls have been so good at keeping quiet in the corridors whilst the chicks grew. On Wednesday the excitement grew when a chick hatched overnight. Two more came quickly after that on Thursday. It was amazing to see them after they hatched (even if they were a little wet and tired) and watch how their feathers dried and fluffed up. Today it was time for the chicks to go back to the farm in Kilkenny. Lots of sad faces around the school saying goodbye but senior infants were very lucky enough to have a hold before they left.
Holding chicks = happy faces!
