Candling

Candling Packages

After your eggs have been incubating for 7-10 days we can return to your school and carry out a 1 hour age-specific candling workshop with your students. This involves a lesson on the science of an egg, from the point of view of the chick. We look at chick development, and then gather to candle your eggs. Your pupils will be spellbound by their chicks jumping about in their shells! This service starts at an additional £75.

We can also offer Bespoke packages for all ages – from Full Day workshops in Secondary Schools (KS3-A Level), to school events and staff INSET on the delights of keeping hens in schools.

But we know that every school is different – we understand that and will accommodate any special requirements – just ring and ask!
