Welwyn Garden City schoolchildren enjoy watching ducks hatch
CHILDREN at a WGC school stared in amazement as two duck eggs hatched before their very eyes.
Pupils at Rowans Primary School, in Rowans, watched in wonder as the pair of Indian Runners emerged from their shells and took their first steps in their brave new world.
Deputy headteacher Helen Ackerman said: “The children loved watching them hatch.
“It was an experience of awe and wonder for them.”
A total of six eggs – four of which hatched during the night – were given to the school by a firm called A J Poultry in Letchworth.

The ducks have since been presented to Vanstone Park Garden Centre, in Hitchin Road, Codicote, where they will replace the Indian Runners which were sadly run over by a customer.
