With our program now in its 9th year, anyone can enjoy chicks and ducklings and return them two weeks later.
This seasonal activity is an effective and fun way to teach children how to care for a live animal without a long-term commitment! Teachers, this is the perfect seasonal science project for your classroom!
For a $50.00 rental fee you will receive:
2 newly hatched chicks (We also have ducklings available for a $60.00 rental fee);
1 container with bedding to keep them in;
Two weeks worth of feed;
A keepsake certificate with your child’s name on it;
Workshop instructions on the care of a live chick.
Pick up date: Good Friday, April 14, 2017 (adjustable for educators)
After two weeks, return the chicks in their original container. The chicks will be placed with their friends to grow into happy, healthy hens on our farm.
Sparta Mountain Farm has house trained pot-bellied pigs for sale. They are full-grown, though small in size, true Vietnamese potbellied pigs. We have raised several generations of these pigs and all have been small in size. Please contact us for more information.
