Egg Incubation / Chick, Duckling, Gosling Hatching
We have been delivering egg incubation and chick hatching facilities to schools, nurseries, pre-schools, colleges and groups for the last 5 years. The schools love the programme and re-book year on year and the children in schools often record the experience as one of their major memories of school life. It touches everyone’s heart to see a chick hatching no matter how young or old!
Even Ofsted love it!
Eggs are provided, 3-21 days from hatching depending on the experience you require and the age of the children. The eggs are candled prior to the experience to ensure the highest possible success rate.
Our incubators are specially designed for classroom hatching. An electronic thermostat ensures accurate temperature control for a high hatch rate. The large viewing windows allow the children to see all stages of hatching.
Our price includes a talk/presentation to the children including a petting session with chickens, ducks and any other feather friends that we have at the time. We set up and leave you with a comprehensive and detailed instructions for the incubators and hatching boxes.
Our staff are all available 24/7 363 days a year to offer advice and support both on the telephone and face-to-face if required and all have full DBS Enhancements and Photo ID. We can also supply a copy of our £10million comprehensive farm insurance including public liability if required.
An educational poster and Chick Life Cycle exploration set is also left with you to help you explain to the children what is happening inside their eggs every day.
Our animal workshops will be starting later in the year - more details to follow.
