Day 2 - Today we have come in to find 5 little ducklings busy trying to escape from the incubators, by lunchtime we were able to place them under their special heat pad and the children had their first chance to hold and pet them.

Day 3 - Lucky 13 little ducklings are now being loved and cuddled by our Buttons, they are all bright yellow and extremely fluffy! 2 eggs remain, both showing positive signs of imminent hatching. 

Day 4 & 5 - Snow days - All the Ducks went home with our fabulous staff to spend time with their Buttons families, Rhiannon's dad was very said to see them return to Preschool on Monday.

Day 8 - All ducks return to Preschool following their weekend away, fun was had by them all, some played in the bath whilst others were entertained by Rhiannon's dog, come explored Sam's kitchen and hall way.
