Chick Eggs Arrive at Preschool: Get Ready for a Week of Egg-citement!

Updated: Apr 12, 2023


Today is an exciting day at our preschool! We have just received our yearly delivery of 10 chick eggs, and the children are bursting with excitement as they eagerly await the hatching of these little bundles of joy over the coming week.


Over the coming week, we will be closely monitoring the eggs and documenting each step of the hatching process. The children will be able to witness the eggs starting to crack and the chicks making their first tentative steps into the world. They will be able to see the chicks fluff up their feathers and start to explore their new surroundings.


We have also been preparing for the care of these little chicks once they hatch. The children will be learning about how to feed and care for the chicks, and they will be able to take an active role in their care. This will be a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn about responsibility and compassion for other living creatures.


We are so excited to share this experience with our preschool community, and we hope that parents will take the time to talk to their children about this incredible event. It is a reminder of the beauty and wonder of the natural world, and we are thrilled to be able to witness it firsthand with our little ones.


In conclusion, hatching and raising chicks is an exciting and rewarding experience for children and families alike. If you are considering rearing your own hens and raising chicks, it is important to do your research and seek advice from reputable sources. Rearing your own hens and raising chicks can be a great way to teach children about responsibility, compassion, and the natural world. It can also provide your family with a steady supply of fresh eggs and a fun and rewarding hobby.
