Young “peep-le” looking to get a first crack at Spring will delight as the annual “eggs-hibit” Eggs to Chicks returns for its 13th year to Kohl Children’s Museum of Greater Chicago on March 18, 2014.

Featuring a special child-height egg incubator, hatchery unit and a pen for newborn chicks, Eggs to Chicks provides a memorable educational opportunity for children. With more than 100 eggs being hatched at the Museum, the delivery and incubation times of the eggs ensure there will always be new chicks hatching any given week for the duration of the exhibit. As the chicks grow, they are delivered to farms in Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana to be used for egg production and species repopulation.

The exhibit will feature the rare Black Java and White Java strains of chicken, which were an endangered species less than a decade ago.

Special Thanks to our partners at Garfield Farm Museum in La Fox, Illinois, which provides the eggs. Eggs to Chicks will remain on display through June 16, 2014.
