Before the Easter holidays our nursery had a visit from a hen called Mavis, the children from both Reception classes and Nursery were all excited to visit Mavis. They were even more excited to discover that Mavis left some eggs for us to look after. We placed the eggs in an incubator and after the Easter holidays were delighted to find that some of the eggs had hatched. The children were watching the remaining eggs hatch, they observed that the chicks were wet and sticky so we were unable to hold them. The following day the children were able to hold the chicks and we are now going to watch them grow.
