Be part of the Farm and your own food cycle! Bring home a pair of baby broiler chicks for a week and live a miniature farm experience in your own home. A great way for families to share in the joys of Spring on the farm without worrying about the long-term needs of growing livestock.
Your foster chicks will come with a box to house them for the week, food, bedding, and instructions for their care. You’ll need to provide a place for the box inside your home that is free of drafts and safe from curious pets. Baby chicks cannot effectively regulate their own body temperature, so your box will also need to be properly set-up with a desk lamp and incandescent bulb for extra warmth.
Advance reservations through this form are required. Chicks and their supplies may be picked up at Willowsford Farm Stand on Saturday April 27th between 11 AM and 2 PM; please return them to the Farm Stand on Saturday May 4th between 11 AM and 2 PM.
