Chicks hatching at the FIS

Primary

For three days, children from Early Years and Elementary School were able to watch baby chicks hatch live at the FIS. Classes came and visited a little incubator that held the eggs and were able to use all of their senses to experience how a baby chick breaks out of its cozy dark egg and into a bright exciting world.

Q: What animals come from eggs?
A: “Dinosaurs, chickens, frogs, butterflies, penguins, and unicorns.” – Early Years 3 to 5

Q: How many days does it take for a chicken egg to hatch?
A: “Seven days, five months, two years” – Grade 1 students
(correct answer: 21 days)

Q: How does the chick get out of its egg?
A: “They burst out using their wings.” – Nia, Early Years 3
A: “They use their beak.” – Vedaant, Early Years 3

The chicks were picked up and brought back to their mothers on Friday by Mr. Witt from the Heroldsberg Bird Society.
