Youngsters could not hide their 'eggscitement' when a number of baby chicks hatched in front of their eyes.
Children at the Happy Day Nursery in Longstone Avenue, Harlesden, watched in wonder as a number of chicks broke free from their egg and came into the world.
The tots received the eggs at their nursery on Tuesday March 31 but had to wait two days until the first popped its head out.
Merlica Elfrey, acting deputy head, said: "The children are really into dinosaurs at the moment and they (the chicks) are the closest living animals to dinosaurs these days se we thought it would good to let the children watch them hatch.
"It was so exciting when they came out. By luck they all hatched when the children were there and they all surrounded the box.

"The children all went 'Wow' as they came out and some got a little scared and had to be comforted but when the chicks popped their heads out they all screamed."
Once all fully hatched the chicks will stay with the nursery for a week before the company who organised the project, Welcome to Living Eggs, take the animals back and find them a safe home.
