Eggs and the Duckling!

We loved having ducklings in Year 1!

At first we didn’t know what could be in the eggs. We used our scientific knowledge of eggs to try and work it out, thinking about the size, colour, shape and texture as well as our known oviparous animals.

Finally they started to hatch in the incubator and we met our first little duckling, Lucky!

Over the weekend Tunip and Lucy hatched helping us understand more about eggs and the lifecycle of birds. We gave them lots of cuddles, exercise and taught them to swim.

We learnt about duckling care and about Angel Wing- that an unbalanced diet and eating lots of bread can damage the growth of birds wings! We know our three little birds will be happy Amanda healthy on the farm and maybe lay their own eggs to carry on the duck lifecycle!
