We have had a fantastic day at The Royal Highland Show. There was so much for us to see and do. Have a look at the pictures to see a taster of everything we got up to. We had lots of fun and would like to thank all the parents and staff that came with us.
Thank you to everyone who helped bake and bought cakes today at the Primary 2 bake sale. We were raising money to buy a new coop and food for the Echline chickens. We managed to raise a massive £147.40! I’m sure the chickens are going to love their new home.
We were all excited to see the chicks this morning to see how they had got on over the weekend. Mrs. Hone kindly took them home over the weekend to make sure they were looked after and had food and water. They have grown a lot in the last few days and have even started to develop feathers on their wings. They are extremely active and enjoy chasing each other around the brooder box.
Things got very exciting last night, two of our eggs hatched and they were quickly followed by three more this morning. We kept the five chicks in the incubator today until their feathers were fluffy. The other four eggs have some cracks on them so we are hoping we might have some more chicks tomorrow morning.
