Chick hatching programme

Turville nursery took part in a life cycle education program that enabled children to see chicks hatching from their eggs. It was a practical experience showing the miracle of birth and it provided an opportunity to cater for and learn how to handle a new born baby chick.

The experience started with the delivery of 10 fertilised eggs in an incubator, which were about 2 days off hatching. Children witnessed the hatching and watched our chicks develop to the next stage over the period of 2 weeks. All our chicks were named by our children and staff and went to a lovely new homes afterwards.
