2017 is already starting to be booked up in the busy periods of Easter and Spring. We have been working on our breeding over the past years and we hope that all our chickens will now be hybrid. This means that all the chickens that hatch can be sexed by their colour. An orange/ginger chick or solid black chick will be a girl. A yellow or black with white cap chick will be a boy.
Term 3 is going to be a busy term. September is booked out. Make sure you book in early to get your preferred dates.
Term 4 saw Chicken Hatching 2 U visit many Schools and Preschools including Illawarra Montessori, Berkley, Carleys Family Day Care, Caringbah South, Mt Terry, Albion Park, and Goodstart, Dapto. We have many booking coming in for the Easter period in 2016. I hope you all had a very Blessed Christmas and New Year.
What a big term 3 we have had. We visited many schools in the illawarra including:- Warilla Public School, The Illawarra Grammar School Prep, Albion Park Family Day Care, Shining Stars ELC Wollongong, Lakelands Public School, Albion Park ELC, Seaview Preschool Flinders, Curious Kids Blackbutt. This term is shaping up to be another big term with schools and childcare facilities booked in.

The incubators have started up again and are purring away beautifully. We have many kit deliveries over the following weeks. I am exited to announce that Chicken Hatching 2 U will be at the Dapto Early Childhood and Expo Market, Ribbonwood Centre Princes Hwy, Dapto on the 19th September. Come along and join the fun.
Minnimurra Public School has completed a big research project on chicken hatching. I was
so impressed with their work book.
28th July 2015
During Winter Chicken Hatching 2 U shuts down due to the increased risk of cold injury in chicks. This can be leg deformities etc. It is also a lot harder on them having to survive in the colder environment. Ethically we prefer to hatch over Spring, Summer and Autumn.
We are nearly fully booked for September. There are places still available in October onwards. Book early so you don't miss out.
2nd June 2015.
Chicken Hatching 2U has been out and about in the last few months before winter. These are the schools, aged care facilities and childcare centres we have visited.
- Shellharbour Anglican College
- Warrawong Public School
- Woonona Public School
- Warrigal Aged Care, Albion Park Rail
- Amity College, Shellharbour
- Warilla North Public School
- Pelican Pre-school, Blackbutt
- Bright Beginnings, Albion Park
Next Week we are visiting:
- Minnimurra Public School
The days are getting colder and it is harder on the chicks. So we will finish up
till September when the days start to get longer, and the temperature become
more agreeable to hatching chicks.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE CHICKS WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED WITH THE PROGRAM
If the chicks don't go home to a family after the program (which most do) they
stay with us. They become pets and are handled often by our 'temperment monitors'.
