Chick Hatches

Members of the PSC participate in Chick Hatching programs across Central Ohio.

Our fertilized eggs are taken to local elementary schools and allowed to hatch in an incubator. Upon hatch, we talk with the kids about a variety of poultry-related topics including parts of the egg, embryonic development, raising of birds, and a variety of other topics, along with answering any questions the children may have.

If you are interested in helping out with the chick hatches or would like more information, please contact one of our officers via e-mail.
