Each Hatch kit contains: up to 22 hatching eggs, computer-controlled IncuView Incubator (featuring a clear, plastic, domed lid) with automatic turner, humidity & temperature meters, food dish, water dish, vitamin supplement, heat lamp and bulb, tote/brooder box (for after the hatch), bedding (shavings) and customized manual.
Our chick breeds are heritage and show birds - high in demand by other breeders, farmers and backyard chicken lovers. These are not meat breeds. Our duck eggs come from our flock of Fancy Crested, Call Ducks, Indian Runner, black Cayuga breeds. We guarantee every hatch will produce chicks, ducks, geese, guinea keets or peacocks using our complete kits.

Fees Complete kits: Book online for Chicken Eggs @ $165 or Duck Eggs @$225 for your kit to hatch any month of the year.
Email or call Farmer Karen about kits for Geese @ $250 or Guineas: $175. Finally, we offer the exotic Peacocks @ $400 for a 4-egg only hatching kit. Additional eggs are available for extra fees. HST will be added to your total. The special breeds are seasonal layers with limited availability.

WHO CAN HATCH? We welcome all clients, including Schools, Families, Senior Homes, and Community Groups. Please don’t be disappointed in trying to book a spring hatch by contacting us in March. We sell out April to June dates by early January each year. Plan and book ahead.

Some school boards have their own incubators. We can support you with a kit that includes: up to 2 dozen hatching eggs, chick starter food, vitamin supplement, food and water dishes, shavings, heat lamp and a brooder box. Please call to book well in advance.
Our Incubatorsare booked by teachers and parents to allow kiddos to experience hatching of eggs right before their eyes! Needing a special, personal "eggs-perience"? Retirement Residences love this program for the building egg-citement over the month. Woolley Wonderland Farm can help you calculate the perfect start-time to hatch for a birthday or other milestone.

You won't feel alone through the process. Clients love that we are an email, text or call away as they hatch their first eggs. We feature custom YouTube links to walk you through the set-up, as well as a custom manual to guide you along the hatching path. No matter where you are in Ontario - we are right there with our diverse virtual supports.

Please select your preferred start date. Full payment is required to secure any booking. Start date or breed changes are not permitted.
The Waiting Game Eggs go into the prepared incubator
Day One Eggs will automatically roll (turn) several times a day so your role is easy. You will keep an eye on the humidity meter and add water as needed. The computerized incubator does the rest. Our instruction guide includes information how the incubator works, shows development of the egg, has illustrations on candling eggs and what to expect to see. We include a customized timeline; from eggs-in to hatching and brooding your chicks/ducks, before they return to our farm.
Candling lets you discover which eggs are viable and should hatch. You can see the "spider web" at 5 days by beaming the light up through the shell. You may also be able to see the heart beating through the shell of a viable egg at day 8. We use candling to verify if eggs have developed as hatch day approaches and to remove eggs that will not hatch.

LOCKDOWN is the last incubator step prior to hatch day and marks the time for you to get the brooder box ready.
When you follow our directions using our eggs and kit, we guarantee a hatch every time. Clients keep the hatched chicks/ducklings for about 11 days beyond the predicted hatch date. All hatchlings must return to the farm at the end of this program per our contract.




All participants get an "I Hatched a Chick" or "I Hatched a Duck" collector card.
