Clucky’s is a new service offering people the chance to hatch their own chicks at home or work.
Mum-of-three Joanne Wright, from Capenhurst, has been raising her own chickens and ducks for more than 10 years and never gets bored of seeing newly-hatched chicks, so she decided to create a business which allows people to do it for themselves - just in time for Easter.
Clucky’s will let you hire all of the equipment and give you the eggs to hatch as well as full instructions on how to do it yourself.
They deliver the kit and set it up, then return in a few weeks to collect the equipment. After the chicks have hatched, they can either be kept as pets, or be given back to be raised on Joanne’s free range farm.
Joanne said: “We had this idea a few weeks ago and created a page on Facebook. Within two days, we had hired out 10 incubators and had orders for more for the following weeks.
“Local schools and nurseries have made orders, as well as nursing homes and local businesses. It’s causing excitement everywhere and people are messaging us saying that they can’t wait for the kit to arrive.
“It makes an ideal Easter present and with spring now here, it’s proved extremely popular.”
