Before the Covid19 lockdown period, our children embarked on the project of hatching some Plymouth Barred Rock chicks. Unfortunately, they had no longer finished hatching when we were all required to head home for Level 4. The baby chicks were taken back to our place and cared for during this period. We uploaded video updates for the Children to Educa so they could see their growth and progress. Once we were able to reopen the centre the Children had a nice surprise with the chickens returning back to the centre although a lot larger than they remember. Since the children missed the experience of caring for the chick’s we will look to hatch another lot of eggs soon.
