Here's our small flock of hens,
living happily in the big garden.
One of the hens went broody in the Summer.
She set up nest on a comfy bag of sawdust.
Geoff bought 11 fertilised eggs.
He was told to buy an odd number, as they can be arranged better.
3 cream legbars, 3 speckled sussex, 3 buff sussex and 2 light sussex.
So we investigated odd and even numbers of eggs,
and how they fitted together in a nest.
but we enjoyed the activity!
We followed this up, by doing some mathematical work on patterns.
20 days later, on a Sunday morning the eggs started to hatch.
We are just wondering how many cockerels we have...
