Adorable chick protected by handsWould you like to hatch chicks in your classroom? We have classroom incubators and brooders available for classroom project hire. We can provide you with all the guidance you need on how to hatch your own chicks in your own school!

We offer two options for classes wanting to raise their own chicks through our classroom incubator project. Both kits have the same equipment, however the second option (Incubator Project Package) includes the opportunity for children to be more interactive with their project. Your class will have talks from our livestock and education staff and even have the opportunity to visit Surrey Docks Farm after their chicks have re-joined our flock.
