Primrose Farm sells fertilized chicken eggs for classroom hatching projects! Eggs come from our flock of rare Columbian Wyandottes. Cost is $5 per dozen. We gladly accept return of chicks hatched out of our eggs if they need a home after brightening your classroom. Sign up early for a “Farmyard Friends” tour and have your whole class accompany their chicks back to the farm.
