Raise Baby Chicks & Then Return Them to Their Flock!


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


Kids love baby chicks! But, baby chicks become adults, and I’m sure as parents we never planned on having pet chickens! You can have the best of both worlds, though — check out Great Country Farm’s Chick-Keeping 101 Program! For a reasonable fee, families can buy baby chicks that are 3- to 5-days old, take them home, and raise them until they are ready to go back home and join their flock at Great Country Farms!

Minimal equipment is needed to raise chicks, and Great Country Farms has equipment packages for purchase as well. This is such a fun way to welcome spring and teach your kids about the responsibility and fun of caring for a farm animal!

Check out their website for more information on raising baby chicks and reserving your chicks today! The 2018 Peep Program opens March 1, 2018; pick-up dates are March 24-31, 2018, 10 am-4 pm.

Great Country Farms is located at 18780 Foggy Bottom Rd., Bluemont, VA 20135.
