Ballintotas National School

…. and the hatching continues in Ballintotas NS


On Thursday last, the children noticed one of the eggs at the ‘zipped’ stage …. this means that the little hole in the egg has now become a longer crack on the egg and hatching is imminent.

Luckily Ms Howick was on hand with her phone to video this wonderful moment ….. as you can hear, the children were SO excited to see baby chick, number 6, being born …..



Ms Power had the HUGELY important job of bringing all 6 chicks home with her for the weekend to make sure they were fed, watered and looked after properly.

Tune in again tomorrow for an introduction to all 6 chicks!!
