Exmouth schoolchildren have learned all about the lifecycle of chicks.

Littleham Primary School year one pupils enjoyed handling newly-hatched birds.

The treat was a part of the pupils’ topic of looking at different animals.

The birds came from Billingsmoor Farm, in Cullompton.

Year one teacher Jo Poslett said they would repeat the event next year.

She said: “The kids loved it. They said they were like yellow fluffy pompoms.

“Beforehand, we watched a video of mammals giving birth and then clips of hens laying eggs to show them the difference.”
