Incubators For Schools
All you need to hatch chickens in your classroom
Incubators For Schools is the work of two Leicestershire mothers who saw the magic and fascination experienced by their own children when they took an incubator to their own school. The incubator and chickens provided a focus for so many activities.
They realised that a school teacher needs more than just a box delivered by courier - they need face to face advice, plenty of support, and an array of equipment to cope easily with the hatched chicks.
- Fully automatic incubator
- Hand delivered and set up
- Around 15 to 20 eggs
- Heat lamp
- Removal of all equipment and chicks at the end of the hire period
The incubation and hatching of chicks can be integrated into your curriculum easily and bring it to life in a truly memorable way.

Mark Ingham, Headteacher, Uplands Infant School:
J Chandler, Foundation Stage Teacher, Cobden Primary School:
"The whole school has benefited from this, everybody learnt from it and everybody was involved. It motivated children in all areas, in particular their writing, counting, knowledge and understanding."
S Keeling, Foundation Stage Teacher, Stanton under Bardon Primary School:
"As a teacher in the Early Years I would thoroughly recommend Incubators For Schools. To see chicks born in front of their very own eyes opens up children’s ability to ask questions about life cycles, changes, growing and birth. A great starting point for children to begin to understand where we all come from. The knowledge, commitment and hands on involvement from Alison and Jayne made this a truly fantastic experience for children and adults alike.
F Baker, Head, Stanton under Bardon Primary School:
"This has been an exciting and awe-inspiring experience for our children. From seeing the eggs being placed in the incubator to seeing the embryo moving in the egg and then the magic of watching chicks make their way into the world – a complete lesson in development and growth. Support was excellent! Ready links with science, PSHE, maths and literacy – an experience we will repeat and which is highly recommended."
