Want to gain first hand experience of the incredible growth of an animal without having long term ownership? Rent a TLC today! This kit provides you with the opportunity to incubate the eggs for 3 weeks, and take care of the recently hatched chicks for another 1 week (total of 30 days)! After this time, we would relocate them to a farm which is purely for layer chickens.
This kit includes:
- (3-8) fertilized eggs
- (1) 40 egg incubator (w/ everything needed built in)
- (1) thermometer and humidity gauge
- (1) waterer and feeder
- (1) heat lamp and bulb
- (1) probiotic and electrolyte powder packets (to ensure healthy chicks)
- (1) hatchling food bag to last 2-3 weeks
- (1) 2’x2’x2’ chick cage (designed to house them up to 5 weeks of age)
- (1) free bag of bedding (enough to last 2 bedding changes)
- (1) TLC care sheet
The number of chicks can range from 3-8. There is an additional $5 fee per egg past 3. Please indicate how many you'd like when adding them to your cart. Price covers a total of 4 weeks including incubation to hatching. The option of keeping the chickens is provided at the end of the 4 weeks and with that comes the fee of $50 for the supplies listed below (excluding items you already own).
Due to high demand, some orders may take up to 3 weeks to fulfill. This is the next available date. Once paid for, you will receive yours on this date or sooner.
June, 27th. (one, possibly two available for this date)
Please check with your towns codes for long term ownership as some towns do require certain permits to own the chickens/ house them. If long term ownership is your plan, please ask us to determine the sex of the chicks for you (at 3 weeks of age) if you wish to not keep the roosters and you will be provided with a 95% sexed female chick. There is an 80-95% hatch rate. You can be provided with an egg/ chick to replace the unhatched egg (this fee is $4 per egg and $6 per chick). We are not responsible for any accidents during the incubation period once the eggs are in your custody. In that case, new eggs will be provided to you with a charge of $6 per egg. In the case of any damage to any of the rented supplies, you will be charged for the price of the item. We are not responsible for any death of a chick over 1 week old and will not replace it after that time. After the return of the chicks, they will be relocated to a local farm for layers-- here they will purely be used for eggs and once retired, they will continue their life on the farm. We work with no farms that plan to use the chickens for meat purposes. Once you receive your kit, all payments are non-refundable.
