Bring the Animals to You

Chick Hatching

In this 3-week package, you’ll get everything you need to hatch eggs right in your classroom.  The experience will begin with a Bring the Farm to You teacher visiting your class, sharing the excitment and process of chicken development through a 40-minute program and bringing all the tools you need for your incubating adventure.  During the next 2 weeks, the life process will be uncovered as you and your students keep watch over the delicate conditions of incubation in our see-through incubator.  As the eggs start cracking and chicks start emerging, you and your students can move them over into our warm brooder, giving them the conditions to thrive – heat, water and food.  For the next week, your students will watch the chicks grow, learning first hand about the cycle of life.

In this 3-week pacakage, you will receive:
• 1 in-class “Chicken and the Egg” program with an enthusiastic Bring the Farm to You teacher
• 1 classroom incubator
• 6 fertile chicken eggs, with 2 weeks left of incubation
