Hen’s Eggs

Ms. McGrath brought some eggs to school from her farm.  There are 18 eggs, which we hope will hatch in 3 weeks time, just before the Easter break.  The eggs are in an incubator to keep them warm and moist, and the incubator automatically turns the eggs every 45 minutes. (The eggs think that their mum is sitting on them and keeping them warm).  We are very excited and can’t wait to see the chicks!
