Today we were able to watch a miracle right before our very eyes! One of our chicks hatched and we were there to watch. So far we have had 3 chicks hatch and they have all been yellow so we had a big surprise when we saw that our new chick had black downy feathers.
Tom was the first Prep to discover that black chicks come out of white eggs and yellow chicks come out of brown eggs.
We realised that the chick uses a lot of energy to break out of the shell and needs to have a big rest when it finally arrives.
We were so excited to watch the chick hatch - most of us had never seen this before.
Have you ever watched a chick hatch?
