Ashmead School

Ashmead provides its children with two everlasting things, one is roots, the other wings.

Ducks

 

Our feathery friends have arrived! We are extremely excited because we now have 5 little duck eggs in Year 1.

On this page we will be posting daily updates so that you can all keep up to date at home with what stage our ducklings are at.

We are also holding a duck naming competition!

Let us know your name suggestions and we will post later this week the winning names.

Hatching Time

Our ducks have made their appearance! We have watched them use their egg tooth to break out of the shell. When they arrive they are a bit floppy and soggy so we have to wait 3 hours for them to dry and become fluffy before we move them into their brooding cage.

Half way there!
