Our eggs have hatched! The children at Hedgehogs Nursery were thrilled to see the chicks hatch from their eggs this week. They waited patiently for the chicks keeping a close on the eggs in the incubator for days, as part of their work on life cycles.

They had so much fun learning about the chicks’ growth and development and the living eggs provided a great way to encourage caring and nurturing skills.

The chicks have now been re-homed on free range farms.
