CHILDREN have been nurturing baby chicks which have hatched as part of an education project.
Stepping Stones nursery, in Stowmarket, was greeted with a dozen new arrivals when the eggs were brought in.
The chicks have slowly been hatching with the children being able to touch and handle them.
Nursery manager, Amanda Fisk, 33, said: “All the children can see them, feed them and hold them. They have been really caring of them. They realise that life can start from an egg. The children have all been talking about them and it’s been a lot of fun. We’ve had all the groups involved – which is 50-odd children. They are here until Friday unless we can find homes for them. The children want to take them home but it’s up to the parents.
“It’s really about interaction with all the groups and getting the parents further through the door to see what the children have been doing.”
