Living Eggs – Day 4

We came in this morning to find that 11 eggs had hatched overnight!

This is what we found in the nursery first thing this morning……..

Over in the school some of the chicks had already been transferred from the incubator to the brooding box. The chicks have to be really dry, fluffy and bright before being moved from the incubator.   I think these chicks were ready, don’t you?

By the end of this morning all 9 chicks in school had hatched.  The last 3 were still in the incubator.  We expect them to be moved to the brooding box tomorrow.

In the nursery we’re now just waiting on one egg to hatch.  Six chicks have been moved to the brooding box leaving these two (plus egg of course!) in the incubator.
