Explore how animals grow and the needs of living things in your class
Birds grow very quickly. Chart growth, see adult feathers appear, listen as their voices change and take care of daily needs of chicks or ducklings in your class. Compare their grow and needs to your own.
After the session is over, all baby birds and all materials are returned to Creature Quest. All birds are returned to the private small free range hobby farms that focus on egg production. Birds are not for sale.
Please note, this is NOT an egg hatching program. Birds are all ready a few days old at the start of the program.
Watch baby birds grow and change. Learn about an animal's basic needs and be responisble for their care.
