We undertook a new project at Rathmichael School. Six eggs arrived in an incubator. We watched over a few days and marked the arrival of five new chicks. This was an amazing experience for the school. To witness the new birth at such close quarters was very exciting. Each morning we watched as more hatched and each chick became stronger. We kept the chickens for two weeks marking their growth, feeding and changing them daily. This is definitely something we will repeat in the future. The education in that surpasses any books in my opinion.
