Living Eggs Ready to Hatch is a two week comprehensive programme providing all you need to hatch chicks in schools, nurseries & care homes.
Embryo eggs are provided, 2-3 days from hatching. The eggs are candled prior to shipping to ensure the highest possible success rate. No need to wait 3 weeks. The Living Eggs incubators are specially designed for classroom hatching. An electronic thermostat ensures accurate temperature control for a high hatch rate. The large viewing windows allow the children to see all stages of hatching.
A brooder box complete with heat light, bedding, feed and waterer is supplied which allows teachers and children easy observation and access to the chicks. Everything you need to successfully hatch and rear your chicks is supplied with the kit.
Hundreds of activities directly linked to the National Curriculum are supplied on a CD with the kit, which can also be easily accessed on our website with a password. Colourful wall posters are also supplied depicting Life Cycles and Embryo Development, depending on your pupils’ ages. Thematic Plans are also available in poster size to support schools and nurseries in getting the best from the programme ( See our Resources )
Activities to engage residents with the programme are also supplied on a CD with the kit, songs, knitting and sewing patterns, even recipes! ( Care Homes )
We deliver your kit to you, set everything up and explain how it operates
Our friendly staff are only too happy to answer any queries you may have. An Advice Line phone number is available 7 days a week to assist you with any queries or concerns you may have.
When the time comes for you to say goodbye to your chicks, we re-home them on free range farms; unless you wish to keep them and have the skill and facilities to be able to do so.
