We were all going about our business today when we realised that the egg incubator alarm was going off and the temperature inside the incubator was going down!! My husband, Craig zoomed off around the house to look for spare leads, but no avail, so it was decided that the chicks must be saved and the only way to do this was to keep them warm, in a way that Monica had done before, down her top! This of course created lots of discussions with the children and I left Monica talking biology whilst I shot of to Mole Valley to buy our own incubator. The new one heated up quickly and the eggs were placed in it. We candled the eggs the next day and found there were signs of life in at least four of the seven, maybe more, so we were very pleased with ourselves!!
The children have been enjoying preparing and growing their own seed sprouts to for the snack table and we've started a daily activity of making our own bread for snack. All good stuff!!
