Ducklings

This term we have some duckling eggs to hatch from Interestingeggs.  They arrived on Monday 4th March and our first duckling hatched on Wednesday, it's very exciting we're all getting chance to go and visit them and see if any more have hatched and see how they are developing.

 

Keep checking back to see the latest updates.

Overnight of the 6th March we had 2 more ducklings hatch and during Thursday 2 more making 6 hatched now, the last one is chirping and has made a small hole so hopefully will hatch overnight.  They have all moved into the big cage now and are keeping warm huddling under the heat station.

Friday 15th March the ducklings have gone off to their forever home with Mrs Brock.  They will be coming back into school during the last week of term so the children can see how they are changing.  We have also found out that they are Pekin ducks.
