Chick Hatching

In this 3-week program, you’ll get everything you need to hatch eggs right at your location.  The experience will begin with a Bring the Farm to You teacher visiting your group, sharing the excitment and process of chicken development through a one-hour program, and bringing you all the tools you’ll need for your incubating adventure.  During the next 2 weeks, the life process will be uncovered as you and your audience keep watch over the delicate conditions of incubation in our see-through incubator.  As the eggs start cracking and chicks start emerging, you’ll move them over into our warm brooder, giving them the conditions to thrive – heat, water and food.  For the next week, your group will watch the chicks grow, learning first-hand about the cycle of life.

 

In this 3-week program, you’ll receive:
• 1 in-class “Chicken and the Egg” program with an enthusiastic Bring the Farm to You teacher
• 1 classroom incubator
• 7 fertile chicken eggs, with 2 weeks left of incubation
• 1 chick brooder with heat lamp, water dish, feed tray and 1-week’s supply of chick food
• 1 chick hatching instruction manual
• 1 framed chick embryology poster
• Curriculum and worksheets
• Delivery and pick-up
