Our chicks!

25th May 2014

On Tuesday 6th May our eggs arrived to great excitement in school.  You can find the early pictures of our chicks in our Gallery.

All ten eggs hatched out, six were cockerel chicks and four were hen chicks.  We have kept the hen chicks in school.

We have weighed and measured our chicks, we have drawn them and made collages of them.  We have thought about what we need to provide for them to keep them healthy, happy and safe.  We have designed hen houses to keep them safe and warm and protected from predators.

Have a look thorugh the pictures below to see some of the things we have been doing!  You will also see photos of our fabulous new hen house and run, so kindly purchased and erected by parents and friends of Branton First School.
