Hatching Chicks program to visit kindergarten
The Hatching Chicks program is visiting kindergarten. The program is an enthralling experience. It brings a piece of the country to the city and makes the wonder of mother nature accessible to all children.
The chicks arrive at the egg stage of development. The children are able to watch eggs hatch in a specially designed incubator, and then observe the hatched chicks at play in a large, clear-sided brooding pen.
At the end of the program any family that would like a chicken to keep is welcome to adopt a pair or more for a small charge. Chickens must go home in pairs or more as they are flock birds.
Please see Mrs Brisbane if you are interested in having two or more of the newly hatched chickens when the program concludes on Friday 17 March.
