CTV News came out to learn more about the Chick-Lets chick rental program.
The kits include a wooden brooder coop handmade by Yvan, a heat lamp, feed, bedding and bowls for both water and food, as well as two already hatched baby chickens.
“Two baby chicks that were hatched just in the last day or two. No more than 3 days old,” Sarah added.
“We also include some educational materials about how baby chicks are hatched and born and how they grow and live.”
Sarah believes the program can play an important role in education as well.
“We're essentially bringing the farm into your home and your family can learn all about how eggs turn into chickens and how chickens live on the farm, and I think that is really important especially as we move towards a more sustainable way of living," she said.
