DELIGHTED children at a nursery were happy little bunnies when three chicks were born in their entrance hall.

Busy Bees Rothamsted nursery manager George Canham hatched the idea of hiring an incubator and eggs so the children could learn how chicks were born.

The chicks were hatched last Monday and the children had a few days with them before they went back to the farm with the incubator.

Georgie said: "The children were really sad to see them go. We had the incubator in the main entrance hall and every day they were coming in to see if they had hatched. Then they were all handling and stroking them."
