Chicks in the classroom
Caring for eggs and raising chicks is an unforgettable experience, filled with opportunities for children to learn about the science of life cycles, the responsibility of caring for a living creature and of course… patience!
Hatching chicks takes around 21 days from the moment they go into the incubator. The process can be hands-on and involved as you would like it to be; you can let the incubator do it’s work automatically, or your class can have the responsibility of turning the eggs by hand 3 times a day, just like a mother hen would!
A member of the farm team will be by your side at every step:
Set up of the incubator
Candling the eggs to check their progress
Now taking bookings for Spring and Summer 2023 for incubator hire. Please be aware that the package books up quickly and we are only able to run a limited number of hatchings per year.
Thank you so much for being such wonderful hosts. From the moment we started emailing to the day of our visit, I felt confident that we were in safe hands. The communication was excellent and the staff on the day were calm, insightful and engaging. We can’t thank you enough.
