Our Rent-a-Chick™ educational program teaches families about farm life by caring for two chicks; learning how to feed, water, exercise, and love on little critters that are completely dependent on you. In exchange your family is teaching the baby chicks how to interact with humans.
After our one week program the chicks are returned to the safety of our farm and grow into our pastured egg layer hens. Kids are encouraged to name their chicks and come back to check on them. In addition we give each family a certificate for a free dozen eggs which their chicks will begin to lay in the fall.
To ENSURE chicks are little we having two SEPARATE batches. This will elevate them being too big and wanting to fly out of their tote.
Saturday APRIL 9th- Saturday APRIL 16th
Saturday APRIL 16th- Saturday APRIL 23rd
At check out you will choose what time you want to pick up your chicks. Because of the number of families in the program you MAY NOT CHANGE your pick up time after April 1st. Each family MUST stay for a 20minute health and safety class at time of pick up. This is when we give you all the instructions necessary for helping your chicks thrive in your care. Please plan for 1 hour to fill out paperwork, take the short class, and pick out your chicks.
