We can travel to your school or club to provide a range of interactive, hands-on sessions
Aldenham Country Park offers schools, nurseries, and groups the opportunity to incubate and hatch chicks in their own classroom! This is an exciting chance for children to learn about lifecycles and take responsibility for animals in their care.
After looking after the chicks for just over a week, they are brought back to our farm to be taken care of while they grow up. When they are old enough, they get moved in with our other chickens on lower farm. Local schools can even visit our farm after the project to see the chickens they hatched.
This project costs £300, and includes all the equipment you will need, a brooder box with food to look after the chicks once they hatch, as well as an information booklet and contact numbers if you have any questions during the project.
For more information on our Incubation Project, please take a look at our Incubation Info Pack.
We can offer assemblies for your school that will give you an overview of what happens at our park and farm and the importance of farming.
Some of the smaller animals can visit you: rabbits, guinea pigs and various poultry can be brought in to provide children with a hands on experience and question session.
We have limited availability for our Mobile Farm sessions through May, June, and July.
