Wow – in only a few weeks, our tiny little hatchlings have burst their way into the world (and our hearts!) and are growing up so quickly! They now have their adult feathers beginning to show and the children have been carefully documenting the changes we have seen to their appearance and behaviour, in their Chick Diaries.
All children have been working to build a safe environment for the chicks as they begin to stretch their wings – several have given us their best impressions of The Great Escape and tried to make a dash for it through the library! However, our Year 3 farmers are always on hand to help guide them back to their pen and check that they are all happy and healthy. The dedication and love that children from all year groups have shown towards the chicks is wonderful and they have clearly enjoyed themselves – despite the odd pile of droppings!
