    • Hi –
      I’ve passed your name along to someone who might be able to help.
      In the future I’d encourage your school to find a home BEFORE hatching the eggs and perhaps make that part of the lessons for the kids.
      Here is a post on hatching chickens that addresses this:

      Thanks, The other teacher had prepared a home to give them away but I believe it was a poultry farm. It wasn’t until the chicks hatched that I looked for an alternate home for the chicks. Usually she tells the class they are going to a farm. I hope you don’t think we were being irresponsible. I just wanted to try a more responsible choice for our chicks. Thanks

      • Great! Thanks – glad a plan was in place. 50% of the hatch will be male, and it’s really hard to find homes for boys. I’m going to send you a few contacts, too.
