We are so EGG-cited that we have 4 chicks hatched so far! We arrived this morning to find 1 chick had hatched and then by lunchtime we had 4! Once one chick emerges, they encourage the others to hatch by chipping away at the eggs with their beaks and by chirping. The chicks have to stay in the incubator to keep them warm for 24 hours and to fluff themselves up as when they first hatch they are very wet.
On Monday 19th March, 10 fertilised eggs arrived at the Garden Centre. We hope by Wednesday 20th March, we will have some cute, fluffy chicks to share with you that will be here until Thursday 29th March. We are so EGG-CITED! Why not visit us at the garden centre and see them for yourself? Keep up to date on their progress on our social media pages; Instagram and Facebook. From The Happy Chick Company.
