Living eggs have been hatching Highfield Preparatory School in Maidenhead.
The school's reception class received a clutch of 10 eggs on Monday, April 28 which were delivered in an incubator.
They were kept at a constant temperature of 98F at the school in West Road before the first egg began 'pipping' on Tuesday, May 6.
The oldest chick was given the name Rosemary before the others came into the world over the next couple of days.
Children then used the chicks as inspiration for painting, writing and singing.
Reception teacher Kim Shard said: "The whole school has been inspired by our little friends, with nursery finding it amazing to see a chick take its first steps."
