CHICK HATCHING PROGRAM
Meadows Family Farm chick hatching program provides a hands-on opportunity to learn about the life cycle of chickens from a fertilized egg to a hatchling.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK YOU ASK?
You rent our chick hatching kit ($, and a staff member from our farm will come to you and set up the equipment and get everything going for you. The eggs will take 21 days to hatch, and then you get to enjoy and watch the chicks grow for the next 7 days. After 7 days, we pick up the chicks and introduce them to their flock.
This unique experience is perfect for school classrooms, at home learners, preschools and daycares and even families in their own homes.
All equipment is provided. The kit can be delivered to your door or picked up from the farm.
Each rental kit includes an incubator to hatch 7 eggs, a chick care bin that includes everything your chicks will need for the first week of life (brooder box, heat lamp, bedding, waterer and feeder and feed), delivery and pick-up, instructional guide, and an egg candler.
