Experience the bird life cycle

Hatch chicks in your home! Watch the embryos develop, encourage hatchlings as they pip and come to understand the special needs and care needed for the baby birds once hatched. 


Once the eggs have hatched, all baby birds and unhatched eggs, the incubator and all materials are returned to Creature Quest. All ducklings, chicks and quail are returned to the private small free range farms where the eggs were obtained. We work with hobby and small farms who have a focus on egg production. 

Create life long memories with this truly

hands-on program.


Study the bird life cycle in your home by hatching quail or chicken eggs!

Registration Opens November 1, 2021.
