predict-a-chick

Over the last two weeks we followed the lives of 17 eggs-turned-chicks in our super-scientific Predict-A-Chick experiment. We ooo-ed and aah-ed as they chipped out of their shells live on webcam and watched as they got bigger and a whole lot fluffier. 

People placed guesses on the first and last to hatch, the heaviest and the loudest for the chance to win some chocolate-filled Easter hampers and the grand prize of dinner at The Fat Duck.

Thanks to everyone who made predictions, commented, tweeted, suggested chick names and watched the stream. If you missed out - fear not -  you can watch the video round-up below.
