Hello! Hope you all are well and safe.
Due to Corona we farmers here at Quiver Farms have had to make some adjustments to stay open. First thing I want to tell you about is our At Home programs. Most poplar one being the "Hatching At Home" for chicks or ducks. Each week we have a new batch of eggs you can come to the farm to pick up, along with everything you need to hatch and care for them. More specifically, in each kit you will get 8-12 eggs, rental of our incubator and a brooder box filled with shavings, feeder, bag of food, waterer and a lamp to keep them warm. Pickups are Monday and Tuesdays between 10am-2pm. YOU MUST SIGN UP TO GET A KIT. To get on the list you need to sign up on Signup Genius. Price is $106 to do it and you also need to bring a security deposit of $175 that will be returned to when everything is returned on time.
First thing you need to do is follow this link https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040B48A5AC2AA1FA7-hatching to see what day and eggs are available, sign up and put how many kits (one set of eggs, incubator and brooder box with equipment) you need as well as what time you plan to come. Then you MUST join a Facebook group "Hatching At Home" to see instructional videos, activities, driving letters, FAQ and other members post pictures of doing to program. https://www.facebook.com/groups/236740667528689/
We also have similar programs with bunnies or guinea pigs. They are called "Hoping At Home" and "Squeaking At Home".
For bunnies you can get a momma and newborns or momma and 3-week old’s for three weeks. Or rent a young bunny for two weeks. You can also care for a momma guinea pig and her young pups for three weeks or rent a guinea pig for two weeks. There is a wait list, it will be at least six weeks for bunnies. Guinea pigs might be a shorter wait. We also created a distance learning curriculum that includes three pre-made videos, a letter from a farmer to introduce the program, easy fun activities to do throughout two weeks, live streaming chicks hatching and chicks playing in their brooder box at three days old. The price is $25 for this alone, if you are participating in the hatching at home opportunity then it is only $10. Tax not included.
That is everything for now! Stay tuned for any more updates on here or on our Facebook page. Quiver Farm Projects.
