    This morning, we noticed some cracks in the eggs! During the afternoon, the chicks began to tap the eggshell with their beaks to make tiny holes inside the shell! 

    Just before it was time to go home, the first chick pushed its way out of the egg! It was such a wonderful sight to see, Alhamdulillah! 

    By the end of the week, the rest of the chicks had hatched. They had become dry and fluffy and were transferred from the incubator to a brooder box were they could walk around and feed on chick crumb and drink water. We went in small groups to observe them and spoke about the importance of using gentle hands to hold and stroke them. 


    We all had a chance to hold the chicks! We knew to be gentle and stroke them gently. It was a memorable experience, Alhamdulillah! They felt soft and fluffy. We could see that they had become bigger and were able to stretch out their wings. We learnt the importance of washing our hands after we have been handling them.
