A Word from your Melbourne South Franchisee

Hi, my name is Danielle and I operate the Melbourne South franchise, which services an extensive area covering the Mornington peninsula and all the way out to west Gippsland. I am here to make your experience with a hatching program one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling activities you can remember. I believe seeing the miracle of an egg coming to life is a joyful experience that you can experience time and time again and still be filled with wonder. I love to watch the excitement on children’s faces, and to hear the stories from the aged care residents about their lives when they had chickens or lived on a farm. I feel proud that I can give them a spark to recall a fond memory.

Book with me and join the fun. You will learn about the life-cycle of chicks by witnessing the hatch, then nurturing the newborn chicks. You 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 new 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.  Instructions on how to care for and raise the chicks are also available to help families who are raising 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 8.00 am & 3.00pm 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 will also give you some contact phone numbers in case you need assistance with anything regarding the program. I am always on the other end of the phone if you have any concerns. My number is 0407 888 278. If you are unable to reach me, please make sure that you do leave a message. I check these regularly and will get back to you as soon as possible.

The price per unit for our hatching program is $350 +GST*. We also offer a multi-unit discount for customers wanting more than one unit delivered to the same place, on the same day, so why don’t you book one for each of your classrooms or areas! The cost for multiple units is $340 +GST* per unit. Our comprehensive service, equipment and quality educational programs will be sure to please.

The wonder of new life, how it begins and the nurturing that follows, is something we believe all should experience and learn about. I look forward to bringing that experience to you!

*Price effective as of 1st July 2023.
