At lunch today Mrs Timmis and I received a special delivery into school.
We now have a variety of 45 eggs incubating which hopefully in a couple of weeks will hatch into chicks. We plan to set up a web cam so that you will be able to watch the chicks during the evening and weekend.
On Monday (26th) Mrs Timmis and I had to candle the eggs. We used a special light to look inside the eggs and see if a chick has begun to grow. We have 30 eggs that we hope will be hatching next week.
It appears we have had a special egg arrive in our incubator
Ecton Brook have the incubator on site this year and pupils can log in to the live web cam in the evenings to watch the chicks hatching. Log on by going to https://www.samsungsmartcam.com
Once signed in the password is chicks.
You can also download the appSmartCam app.
