They have a new home with one of the children from Cherry class, but came back to visit earlier this week and stayed for a sleepover!
The 'cute' fluffy chicks have changed so much. The children noticed that you can also see the start of the chickens comb on the top of its head.
They are now 3 weeks old and we await to find out if they are girls and boys. This will be noticeable between 12-16 weeks. If they are hens, then at around this time, they too will start laying. If they are cockerals then they will show themselves by making lots of noise and possibly by fighting if there's another cockeral about.......
We have used this real life experience to look at the life cycle of the hen. And so, if there is a hen and a cockeral is running with her, chances are there could be more baby chicks yo follow!
