We have all loved having the chicks in school and our six are growing up fast! The chicks have been visiting all the different classes so everyone can see them and hold them. We have 6 different breeds that all look very different and we all have our own favourites! Within a week, they had started growing their feathers and a couple of them will already flap and attempt to fly out when we open the cage!

We will be thinking of names for them after half term, when their feathers start coming through properly and we can see what they are going to look like! WildlifeKate  named the biggest one ‘Clive’ and we think he is going to be a cockerel. Miss Compton called the cookie dough- coloured one ‘Bruce’.

There are lots of photos of us and the chicks in our Flickr album HERE
