During the 2020-2021 academic year, we were able to take delivery of 2 incubators and 16 chickens eggs. The children were able to watch as the chicks hatched out. We were able to hand-rear them and decided that we should keep 6 for the children of the school to care for.
Mr File and Mr Elgar ensure that the chickens are fed, watered and cleaned out regularly with the support of the children.
Outside of the school learning hours, Mr File, Mr Elgar and a team of children and parents look after the well being of our chickens. We communicate through a Whatsapp group to make sure that their every need is met!
Eggs are regularly collected and the chickens are let out and put away each day. Water, food and hay are checked and topped up if needed.
