This week in Year 5 we have the arrival of 11 eggs, which are currently sat in our incubator keeping nice and warm. We have been keeping an eye on them and making sure that they have enough water and are the correct temperature, so that they can hatch into chicks. The process will take up to 21 days. Look out for more pictures along the way.
