We hatch chicks at Hermit House every three weeks between March and September. We have a 100 egg automated incubator and a 25 egg incubator that requires manual turning. Our plan is to invest in two more 100 egg incubators so we can hatch chicks every week. We classify them as a chick if they are under two weeks old, otherwise they become known as juveniles.
Note: we have supended hatching chicks until some our new coops have been completed, so we can breed pure heritage chicks.
