Very soon our long awaited chicks will be hatching from our eggs in the incubator. We have been talking about how chicks grow in the egg and what we need to do to look after them in and out of the egg. We watched a video of how chicks are looked after at a farm. We have talked about other Oviparous animals and watched some videos of animals laying eggs and eggs hatching. We have cracked an unfertilized egg and examined the parts. Ask your child what they have learned and be sure to drop by next week to visit our new babies.
