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!

What: Raise Baby Chicks & Then Return Them to Their Flock
When: The 2019 Peep Program opens March 1, 2019; pick-up dates are April 13-20, 2019
