I provide everything you need to hatch out the brood of chicks including, delivery, set up, instructions, educational material, activity resources and back up support. You will be supplied with a small transparent incubator and 10 eggs that are due to hatch over the following 2days. All you have to do is have a table ready near a power point.
The day after they arrive you will hear peeping noises coming from inside the eggs. Next you will notice small holes appearing in the eggs. For a few hours the chick will peck - rest -peck -rest. This process is slow and because there are lots of eggs all hatching at different times there is plenty of opportunity for observation.
After hatching, the chicks can be transferred to the transparent brooder box that is supplied by me. The box contains everything the chicks will need including food.
Over the following 10 days you can enjoy handling the chicks, watching them grow and caring for them. You have the option of keeping the chicks or I will pick them up along with all of the equipment at the end of the 2 week period. If you are keeping the chicks I also supply information on raising chickens.
