February 20th, 2024 1:00 - 2:00 pm & 7:00 - 8:00 pm Central Time Looks Who’s Hatching
Each year we offer the LWH class online via Zoom. In this one hour class, we go over all the details for hatching eggs, caring for the chicks/ducks when they hatch and briefly share the activity guide. If you participated in LWH in the last 2 years, you are not required to take the class. However, those that register will have priority access to select which hatch they would like to participate in. Typically, all of our spring hatches fill from class participatnts. You can join us live at either 1pm or 7pm. The class will also be recorded.
