Lay a little egg for me…

Over the last four or five years we’ve taken an incubator and chicken eggs into the childrens’ school for one of the classes to have in their classroom for the whole of the incubation period and perhaps a couple of weeks after the chicks hatch.

They have to be kept in a pen under a heat lamp until their feathers are well-developed (usually when they’re about six weeks old), but here are some photos of this years chicks on their first weekend in the outside world.
