Chick news!

Yipeeee exciting news today- One of Mavis' eggs has hatched. Welcome to the world little chick! As you can see it isn't a yellow chick, but yellow and brown. The breed is called a Cream Legbar hen. Lovely addition to our last week of school :-)

Smalley's Summer Show 2017

Well done children, what a super show.

Thank you for all of your hard work and effort.

 

 

'Eggciting' times ahead!

As you may have seen, we are expecting chicks in the last week of term! Mavis currently has a clutch of 7 eggs that she is incubating and doing a very good job with. Today she has been moved into a separate hutch so that she can incubate in peace and get ready for her chicks. 

Incubation and chick development takes 21 days which is amazing that a new life can be made in just 3 weeks. Today is day 10 so we have carefully checked the eggs development. This is called 'candling'. To candle an egg you need to shine a torch at the bottom of the egg in a very dark room. As you can see, by day 10 the egg will show lots of veins and blood vessels- this is called mapping. 

Mavis has done a good job so far and her chicks are developing. The eggs are half way there so keep your fingers crossed for the due date! 

If you have anything you'd like to know about the hens, or Mavis and her eggs just remember you can ask Miss Tulley or Mrs Reckless :-)

What a brilliant day for Mrs Mason and myself to join our fabulous Year 6 children in the sun at PGL.

They are doing so well and we are very proud of them.

Huge thank you also to Mr Redgrave, Mrs Shaw and Dr Shelton who are looking after them brilliantly and are taking time away from their own families this week to care for our children.

Enjoy the campfire and the last day everyone and safe journey home tomorrow.
