The Hatching Chicks program provides a hands-on opportunity to learn about the life cycle of chickens from a fertilised egg to a hatchling. The program also provides information about the stages of growth that a chick goes through to become an adult bird, as well as how to manage and care for a healthy and happy chicken. This unique experience is perfect for use at home with the family, in schools and childcare settings, and in aged care facilities. All equipment is provided. The kit is delivered to your door and picked up 12 days later after the chicks have hatched and grown their feathers!
