Chicken Watch

Our yearly chicken watch event has begun!

Yesterday afternoon, Jack Hunt School received a delivery of 10 chicken eggs from The Happy Chick Company to be hatched. The eggs are currently sitting in our incubator under just the right conditions for them to develop. The eggs have been spotted wobbling and shaking gently and are predicted to have hatched very soon!

Having the chicks in school allows the pupils involved to see for themselves this fascinating part of the life cycle, whilst also showing them the importance of caring for these animals and how much of a benefit it is to them.

Our “Chicken Watch 2017” blog is keeping a close eye on the eggs and will track their development until all the chicks have hatched. You can view the blog and our chicken watch live stream here: http://www.jackhunt.net/blog/?pid=274&nid=46
