QUAIL Mini Rental: Incubator + eggs + curriculum

QUAIL Mini Rental: Incubator + eggs + curriculum

Our Mini Rental Kit has what you need to incubate and hatch your chicks at home or in your classroom! 

  • 12 fertile coturnix quail eggs

  • Incubator with automatic egg turner

  • Candler (to see chicks in the egg!)

  • Step-by-step chatching guide with videos

  • Elementary hatching curriculum (details below)

  • Phone/text support

Note: This kit does NOT include the brooder box, heat plate, feeder, waterer, feed and bedding that is included in the Complete Kit.


This is a 3-week rental. Your quail eggs will incubate for the first 18 days and then hatch. After that, you can watch them grow!


Quail chicks grow incredibly fast. In fact, they will have almost all their adult feathers by the time they are 2 weeks old! 

At the end of the rental, you'll return your kit. You can keep your chicks, give them away, or return them to Linda's farm with your kit.

By purchasing this rental, you are agreeing to the policies stated below. Please read them!  Note that chicken breed can vary depending on availability.


    We understand that life happens and things change. If you need to reschedule, please notify us at seven (7) days before your scheduled pickup. You can reschedule or transfer your rental to another person at no extra charge. 

    The deadline for cancelling an Order is prior to making payment.   Once your Order is confirmed (pick up date and location agreed and payment received), any cancellation of your Order will be subject to a $75 cancellation fee.

    You are responsible for returning your hatching kit in good working condition by your scheduled date.  Returning your kit on time is really important because we have families/schools waiting their turn to use the kit. If you can’t return your kit at the scheduled time, we can make arrangements (for an additional fee of $100 per week, not prorated) if our scheduling allows. If kit item(s) are returned broken or have damage beyond normal wear and tear, you will be responsible for replacing the item. 

    We take great care to give you a successfulful and memorable hatching experience. However, we are dealing with nature, so not every egg will be fertile, not every egg will hatch, and sometime a chick may die for unkown reasons. In addition, there are other things that could go wrong. You may experience a power outage or someone might accidentally unplug the incubator. Unheated classrooms may get too cold for the incubator to keep up. These are things that are out of our control, so we don't offer refunds. In the event that something does go wrong, please contact us immediately so we can offer guidance and support.
