A Word from your Brisbane South East Franchisee
Hi, I’m Ruth. My husband, John and I are the owner/ operators of the Brisbane South East franchise of Henny Penny Hatching, having purchased the business in 2021. I got to know the business when I was buying the chicks from the previous owner. Our granddaughters, Madeleine and Maggie, really love the chicks. When their friends stay over, they like to nurse a chick each.
I am semi-retired and love gardening and raising chickens. I have a current Blue Card and so does my husband, John. I do most of the deliveries, but John is always there to help out on my really busy days. Operating this business gets me out of the house and meeting all the happy teachers and kids. I also go to aged care facilities, where it is such a pleasure to see all the happy smiles on residents’ faces when they see the little chicks. I love going to the different centres and schools and meeting everyone. They are always so excited to see us!
Book with me and join in the fun. You will learn about the life-cycle of chicks by witnessing the hatch, then nurturing the newborn chicks. You will then have the opportunity to adopt them out to suitable families, or to take them home yourself, when the 11day program is finished! I will, however, be happy to take any chicks that are not adopted out, and find a suitable home for them. For those who do adopt chicks, Take Home Packs are available. These consist of a feeder and a drinker along with enough feed and wood shavings (bedding material) to get your chicks through the first 2 weeks in their new home. Complete instructions on how to care for and raise the chicks are also available to help families who are rearing chicks for the first time.
Have a look at our website and see what Our Program has to offer then give me a call. I will deliver and set up your program on a Monday between 7.00 am & 2.00pm and collect it 11 days later (on a Friday) at approximately the same time. Once set up I will talk you through the information provided and answer any questions you may have. You will receive basic care instructions, forms to assist you with adopting out the chicks and an informative poster for everyone to see. I am always on the other end of the phone if you have any concerns or you need assistance with anything regarding the program. My number is 0458 102 872. If you are unable to reach me, please make sure that you do leave a message, as I check these regularly and will get back to you as soon as possible.
Prices per unit are $260. However, we offer a multi-unit discount to customers in our region, so why don’t you book two or more units (1 per classroom) at the reduced price of only $250 per unit! Our comprehensive service, equipment and quality educational programs will be sure to please.
The wonder of new life, the amazing way in which it begins and the nurturing that follows, is something we believe should be experienced by all. I look forward to bringing that experience to you!
