On Monday 23rd April, as promised, The Mobile Farm delivered seven eggs along with an incubator and a brooding box. On Wednesday morning, we noticed that one of the chicks had started to peck and push its way out of its shell! Very quickly all the other chicks began to chip away at their shells and make an entrance into the world.

The children then began caring for the chicks and observing their progress. The Nursery children felt privileged and were very excited to choose names for them. All the names that were suggested by the children were put into a hat, the names picked were:  Jimmy the Pirate, Chick, Sunny, Poppy Pumpkin, Connan, Merry Smith and Rosie.

The Mobile Farm have now taken all seven chicks back to the farm. What a wonderful, educational experience for the children!
