U Can Hatch Us Chicken Hatching Education Programmes are a great way to watch and gain valuable experience/knowledge about the development of a chicken.

The chicken hatching education program duration is 12 days. Everything you need is supplied, 12 chicken eggs, the incubator, brooder, heat source, food, resource/information folder, plus more. When the eggs are delivered on the Monday, they will hatch a couple of days later in the first week, then you will have the chicks until the Friday the following week.

We deliver, supply and collect everything for you. The incubator we use is very simple, we set it for you and no need for you to adjust anything, just sit back and watch them hatch. Also our lovely large brooder area gives you optimum viewing and plenty of room for the chicks to scratch around and display natural behaviour. We also have a fully transportable pen if you wish to request instead, therefore you can move the pen from room to room or take home on weekends if needed.

With all of these programs we will collect the chicks at the end of the program. Alternatively, if you would like to keep the chicks and parents, teachers can provide a good home this is certainly encouraged, we supply an information sheet on how to properly care for them in a free range environment. The main breed of chickens that we presently use are the Hyline Brown. The reason we have the Hyline breed is that the sex of the chick is easily identified and they are great layers and are ideal for the backyard but other breeds can be provided.

All you need to provide is one large table, trestle table, desk or two small rectangle tables close to a power point. Both the incubator and the brooder pen need power.

We usually would require a minimum of 4-5 weeks' notice for the dates that you require so we can organise the eggs for your programme. We do get booked out very quickly so I do advise once you do decide to go ahead, please let me know as soon as possible to secure a booking.

Prices vary depending on location and programmes you select.

Additional presentation can be arranged on the Chick Hatching Education Programmes or on local conservation, working with animals etc.
