Rathmore N.S. took part in the Nore Valley School Incubator Project. The project involves an incubator and 7 eggs being delivered to school for a four to five week process. We received our incubator on Tuesday 7th February and turned it on Wednesday 8th.
The process of the chicks hatching took 21 days. Five chicks hatched on Wednesday 1st March. As Nore Valley needed the incubator, they took the remaining two unhatched chicks back to the park on Friday 3rd to put into a large incubator.
We would like to say a big thank you to Niamh, Kadie, Paul and Martina for looking after the project for the past three weeks. Great excitement all throughout the school and chirping sounds to boot !
