Gorsewood's Eggsploring Eggsperience

Date: 29th Apr 2016 @ 8:03am

At Gorsewood we have been eggstremely fortunate to be able to watch some baby chicks hatching. The joyful eggsperience has fascinated both pupils and staff.

We have all been given the opportunity to observe, engage with and look after the chicks in a safe environment.

As we say goodbye to the chicks today, they are off to their new home, some of us have reflected on the eggsperience of the past 2 weeks below.

I just love this time of year when we get to hatch our very own chicks. From the initial excitement of just waiting for the eggs to hatch and watching those first wobbly steps as they emerge to trying to keep 6 very energetic chicks in one place for their final photo it has simply been eggstraordinary!

I love the cute, baby chicks! When I was holding one of them, it seemed like it was sitting in my hand and after a while it jumped on to the table out of my hand! It was so adorable! I wish I could keep one.
