Early Years are getting ready for their new arrivals!
Today is day 20 of 21, of the incubation process and some of the eggs are starting to show pipping marks (this is when the chick is using its eggs tooth to start hatching). This afternoon we have heard some chirping noises coming from the eggs and we have played some hen sounds back to them, to encourage them out, just like their Mummy would do. The children have learnt that the hatching process is a long one , between 10 and 24 hours. So now we have an anxious and exciting time ahead, and tomorrow morning we may be greeted by some tiny chicks, in Maple Class.
