Two pupils at Holy Trinity Primary School, Halifax, were in for a tweet on their birthdays.
Christopher Slater, eight, and Haifa Ali, 10, shared their birthdays with two baby chicks named Rosie and Chunky Trevor.
The school had eight chick eggs delivered in an incubator, along with a web cam to allow children to watch the hatching process and development of the baby chicks.
Children have learnt about development and hatching process as part of their ‘real life’ science classes.
Each of the chicks were named by school year groups.
