In the case of Nursery, 10 eggs came from the farm and we took great care of them. They were kept warm in the incubator and we each guess as to which day they would hatch. It all happened on Wednesday 6th June. We were lucky and excited to have 8 chicks hatch. A mixture of yellow boys and brown girls. This week the chicks were big enough for us to handle. We gave them lots of gentle stokes and held them carefully. We were so gentle that a few chicks fell fast asleep in our hands!
Sadly today the farmer came to collect them all to take them back home to their mother on the farm. Goodbye little chicks, we loved having you.
