The girls are enjoying Cluckingham Palace, this weekend they have some new perches and a little paddling pool. They love the new perches but are not keen on water, except to drink. They are growing very fast but won't lay eggs until they are 8 to 10 months old. They like eating chicken food and kitchen leftovers, like cabbage ! I wonder what you can find out about what chickens can and cannot eat ? Maybe you can give some ideas to Ms. Callow ?
On Monday 19th February, 10 eggs were delivered to our school in an incubator. Over the next few days, we hope to see the chicks hatch out of their eggs. We are very excited to learn more about them, but mostly to hold them when they are big enough!
Check on here for updates over the next 2 weeks to see how they are getting on.
The chicks have hatched!
During the night of Wednesday 21st February, we were very excited to find that the 10 chicks had hatched! We have 3 girls (the darker brown chicks) and 7 boys (the lighter yellow chicks). All of them seem healthy and they are chirping away in their new home for the next week!
Have a look at our photos.
