Chicks!

Maths/ Science Cert

January 15th 2016

We had an exciting start to the new year this week with the birth of two new pupils! Mr Breathnach's class took part in the Cock-a-doodle-doo project where 5 eggs were delivered to the school on Monday along with an incubator, brooder, feed and  other equipment. On Wednesday afternoon at 4.15pm our first chick hatched, a blue hen. It was very exciting. On Thursday evening at 5.10pm a second chick hatched, this time a brown hen. The chicks are both healthy and lively!  We have 3 eggs remaining so are hoping we may have another surprise soon! The chicks will be taken back to the Cock-a-doodle company to a farm in Kilkenny next Friday. A big thank you to Mr Breathnach and his class for giving each class an opportunity to visit the chicks in their classroom.
