Your Nanny McCluckins Chick Hatching Experience
Your experience starts with a visit to one of our convenient locations where you will meet your local Nanny McCluckins Chicken Whisperer. This is when you will pick up your kit and ask any questions that you may have.
After you’ve picked up your kit you will want to get it home or to your school for set up. Keep in mind that you will want to choose a spot that doesn’t get a lot of temperature fluctuation and a place that everyone will be able to see all the hatching magic!
Now is the time to nurture the environment that you have created for your eggs. You will monitor the temperature and the humidity and using the provided calendar you will make any necessary adjustments. All of our incubators are auto-turning and temperature regulated which means that maintaining the perfect incubating environment is easy and straightforward.
Watching the growth and development of your chicks is amazing and it is the perfect time to jump into the educational homeschooling curriculum that we have created!
This is a simple and very affordable add-on that we highly recommend. It covers all the core subjects and will give your kiddos something to focus on while they eagerly anticipate the arrival of your baby chicks, quail or ducks!
As your hatch day is approaching, think Birthday morning excitement as you wake up and run to the incubator to see if you have any furf babies waiting to greet you!
Once your hatchlings have arrived you will want to keep them under special care in the incubator – the “CHICKU” as we lovingly call it – for a minimum of 24 hours.
This is the safest environment for your babies as they continue to absorb their yolk sac, dry off and fluff up as well as get nice strong legs.
They also let all their brothers and sisters know that it is time to come out and join the world.
Hatch day is your chick’s birthday so have fun with it! You can throw a little party. Have a fun photoshoot. Take your chicks outside into the yard. Spend time bonding and even teach them tricks. Yes – tricks! Birds are VERY smart!
A Nanny McCluckins Chick Hatching Experience is sure to be one of the top memorable things you will ever do so share your experience on social media. Your friends and family will be very excited to see what you have been up to!
As you get closer to your baby chicks’ moving day, we invite you to prepare your children by looking into what family farming in your city or community looks like.
Understanding how agriculture works in your area is pretty cool. Did you know, that just outside most city limits there are numerous small, family farms?
These farms provide many of the fruits, veggies, EGGS and other protein sources that you find at your local Farmer’s Markets.
When you take part in a Nanny McCluckins Chick Hatching Experience you are helping local egg farmers feed their families…and maybe yours too!
Back Home at the Farm!
It isn’t a time to be sad, although goodbyes can definitely be tough; but instead, a time to be happy for them!
The homes that your chick babies go back to is very important to us so we very thoughtfully cultivate relationships with amazing local egg laying farms. After you return them to us, we carefully transport them back to the farm that they were laid at.
