Last year in May, 10 chicks hatched at the school. Some families then took pairs of chicks home to be reared. Today, two of the chicks, now fully grown hens, returned to their place of birth.
With some flapping, scratching and pecking, Sprickle and Sprackle, quickly drew a crowd. Between them, they reportedly lay between 2-4 eggs per day. We are glad they took time off their busy schedule to come and entertain us.
Thanks to Marnie and her family for allowing us to borrow these two fine specimens for the day and to Else for the enclosure.
