VLG Participated in the Green Acres Outdoor Education Chick Hatching Program. We received 12 eggs and all the necessary equipment from the company. We placed the eggs in an incubator for approx. 21 days until the chicks began to hatch. Once they hatched, we kept them in a large box and cared for them for about a week. The residents enjoyed watching the chickens hatch and were able to touch and hold them once they were born. Everyone was very involved and enjoyed this unique experience.
