Day 5 of the Chicks

Overnight we had a couple more eggs hatch and we had a final total of nine chicks. One chick has got a condition called splayed legs so the farm have collected him to try and help it. During the day the chicks were moved to the brooder box. The children have been thinking of how hard it must of been to get out of the egg and how the chick must have felt when it came out. They pretended a cardboard box was an egg!! They have also compared what a chick needs to a human, and how we share several basic needs.
