Chick Incubation for the Classroom

The Suffolk County Farm and Education Center is a supplier of fertile chicken eggs to hatch in the classroom and homeschool setting from the end of February through mid May. All eggs MUST be ordered in advance and are reserved on a “first come, first served” basis.

Egg orders must be reserved via call or email, not through order forms or POs. Order forms and POs are not considered reservations; any orders sent this way do not guarantee eggs on the requested dates. Orders may be cancelled in writing up to 30 days prior to reserved pick up date. You will be refunded 70% of the fee. No refunds will be given if request is less than 30 days prior to reserved pick up date.

Once again, we are only offering cartons of 8 eggs per classroom.

Reservations for the 2022-2023 season are now CLOSED. All chicks hatched through this program must be returned to the Suffolk County Farm. Hatchers who are interested in keeping their female chicks should contact Kate.

Teacher training courses will be required for new hatchers in order to purchase embryology supplies. Dates for the Teacher Trainings will be as follows (dates subject to change):

  • February 9th, 2023 from 4:30 – 7:30 PM – Virtual via Zoom
