Chicken Hatching

See chickens hatch before your eyes.
Help them grow strong & happy!
Give children first hand experience on how life begins for a chicken.

The Chicken Hatching experience introduces children to the fascinating hatching process.


An interactive encounter

Children observe seemingly lifeless eggs crack open and watch fully developed baby chicks emerge. They then experience the amazing transformation from weak and wet newborns, into fluffy active chicks! Children also learn about the changing needs of the chicks as they grow and develop over a period of 2 weeks.

The incubation of eggs will demonstrate the effects of heat, air, and moisture control on hatch-ability. Waiting to see if all of the chicks will hatch is an eye-opening way to experience just how delicate the balance between survival and extinction can be.

What age group best suits the AOTM Chicken Hatching Program

Preschool, Kindergarten, Child Care & Primary School Education from Foundation to Year 6. But the information & interaction can be enjoyed by all ages.

Little kids love to learn, and interaction with animals help to solidify that learning .
Primary school children will love the opportunity to get up close and personal with all our friendly animals! The program fits in perfectly with the school curriculum, and can be a great teaching aid. Allowing the children to be interactive helps to develop their interest in animals, and this can be translated well to the classroom.

Our responsable pet interaction is perfect for for students who are getting a class pet, or are just learning about responsibilities in relation to other living things

Our engaging approach to learning will ensure that it is a class to remember!

Chicken Hatching Program

Our focus on Science Foundations & complimenting the Australia School Curriculum.

Responsable Pet Interactions Objective:
Learn the 5 freedoms in relation to owning pets and how these freedoms relate to everyday life.

-Identify and read common pet body language in order to develop an appreciation and understanding of how to
behave appropriately and safely around them.
-Understand important pet owner responsibilities and rules, and the connection to the health of the community and
-Understand the importance of choosing an appropriate pet, general welfare and husbandry requirements.
The way an animal moves does depend on a variety of factors, including their size and shape.
People use science in their everyday lives, which includes caring for their environment and living things.
We encourage children to communicate their observations and ideas in a variety of ways through oral discussion and direct animal interaction. We ask thought provoking questions and have plenty of activity sheets available from our website you are welcome to download & print out prior to our visit.
