Depending on availability, our egg incubator can be rented to hatch eggs in your home close to your special day.
For a fee of $115 (plus HST) we provide you with a complete package. A travel surcharge will apply for delivery. You will get the loan of the incubator which has windows in the top to watch the hatch, automatic egg turner, thermometer and humidity meter. You will get a step-by-step instruction book, colorful eggs as well as chick food with a feeder and vitamin powder and a drinker bottle. We're an email or phone call away with any questions you may have along the journey. From April to June, we must pick up the incubator as soon as they're hatched and return again when you're done to pick up chicks and bring them to the farm.
