A hugely beneficial, four part programme which 


This lesson revolves all around the chicken and the egg! Children will learn the full egg cycle, get to use the equipment involved, take a walk around the chicken sheds and collect some eggs. They will also see the incubator and may even see a chick hatching! Chicks and ducklings will also be available to hold and feed.
