We have welcomed five fluffy rare breed chicks to The Oratory, temporarily, for British Science Week 2021.
Pupils and staff alike watched fascinated as the hatching was live-streamed via our YouTube channel, with whole tutor groups cheering them on. The Science Department has never seen so many visitors outside of lessons!
Next week they will be ready to be handled, and pupils are already queueing for a cuddle. They will be collected on Friday by Eggucation in order to play their part in the conservation of chicken breeds on the critical watchlist.
