At Country Barn, we always strive to give authentic farm experiences. Now you can take that experience home with you! We first developed the Rent a Chick program Spring 2015 as a way to introduce children to caring for a live animal without a long-term commitment. Kids have the opportunity to take the chicks home (after a care class on the farm) for 2 weeks to see the birds grow--right before their eyes! Some have even decided to become chicken farmers themselves to raise their birds for their own! The rest return to our chicken coop to produce eggs for our Farm Market--they are just a visit to the Barnyard Kingdom away!
Kids love spending time caring for their chicks, learning about the birds and documenting their growth--check out our facebook page for their awesome photo diaries (#Rentababychickprogram)
PROGRAM FULL FOR August 2017 but stay tuned for our Spring 2018 program sign-ups!
