We are going to have our own baby chickens in about three weeks thanks to Nore Valley Park. Brian is involved with a school incubation project where they give the school an incubator and seven eggs for about 6 weeks and we have an opportunity to watch them hatch and keep them a little while longer before they return to Nore Valley Farm. It has been very exciting watching the incubator rotate the eggs in the Halla Mór. The children have been very quiet as they walk past them every da. Brain told them not to disturb them.
Brian had an added surprise when he brought in a 3 week old baby pig , Stella, to meet them as well. Stella was the star for the day with everyone wanting to rub and hold her. We even had visiting Garda Grace, who came to talk about internet safety, getting a cuddle.
