Chicken Hatching

chicken_hatch

See chickens hatch before your eyes.
Help them grow strong & happy!

Give children first hand experience on how life begins for a chicken.

The Chicken Hatching experience introduces children to the delicate hatching process.

      • Children can identify how chickens hatch into the world
      • Can learn what other animals come from eggs
      • How to care for new born chicks

Children monitor seemingly lifeless eggs crack open and watch fully developed baby chicks emerge and experience the amazing transformation from weak and wet newborns, into fluffy active chicks! Children also learn about the changing needs of the chicks as they grow and develop over a period of 1 or 2 weeks.

The incubation of eggs will demonstrate the effects of heat, air, and moisture control on hatch-ability. Waiting to see if all of the chicks will hatch is an eye-opening way to experience just how delicate the balance between survival and extinction can be.

 

Animals include:

Chicken & fertile eggs to hatch in incubator.
