Incubating Ducklings

20th April 2022

On April 25th an incubator and six duck’s eggs were delivered to school. The eggs had already been in the incubator for nineteen days and so we only had two days to wait until our ducklings started to hatch. Over the course of twenty four hours we watched as all of them hatched.

The children were fascinated with watching the way the ducks worked the way out of their shells and we watched them grow over the next 10 days before they went back to live on the farm. The most fun was watching duckling swimming lessons and having a duckling cuddle!
