After a false start, the eggs finally arrived this week for round two of hatching!
The children were amazed as they watched the first few chicks make holes in the shell, which we later learned is called pipping, before finally emerging from their eggs totally exhaused and wet!
By Wednesday, all eleven chicks had hatched. After 24 hours had passed, in which time they had dried and fluffed up, they could all be transfered to the brooding box.
