Baby Chicks!

Gareths preschool is taking part in the Henny Penny Hatching program.

They have taken delivery of an incubator with eggs ready to hatch. I dropped Gar off at pre-school at 9am and we saw that two had hatched over night. He was very excited to see the empty egg shells.

Sian and Rhiannon really wanted to collect Gar with me today so I collected them from school and we headed into Carey Bay. Since I left this morning another two had pecked their way out of their shells. It was lovely to see the tiny fluffy chicks.

The staff sat Sian, Rhiannon and Gar down and let them each have a hold of a chick for a few minutes. What a lovely afternoon.

Only problem now is that I have to re-think tea

I had planned roast chicken...
