Newman School pupils and staff were excited by the arrival of 12 eggs to hatch in an incubator. Richard, our technician, set up a webcam so that each classroom could watch as little beaks began to break through the shells. All children loved to visit the eggs and then the chicks as they hatched and started to explore their brood box. After a week, they were collected and went to live on small holdings and free range farms. We wish them a long and happy life!
