Chickens make wonderful companions for children. Daily tasks such as collecting eggs, taking out food scraps and replacing fresh water can all be done by young children which in turn, teaches them about looking after animals. Your child’s immune system, mental health and happiness will also benefit from owning feathered friends.
Life cycles are a fantastic way of introducing the circle of life, nature and change to your child
Is it safe to hatch chick in the classroom around children who have egg allergy?
According to Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia "They strongly encourage you to speak with the parent and ask them to contact their allergy specialist with your query as the specialist is the best place to answer a question about a child and their sensitivity.
But generally watching chicks hatch in incubators poses no risk to children with egg allergy, but they should be encouraged to wash their hands after touching the incubation box in case there is any residual egg content on it.
Encourage parents/carer of a child with the allergy to be present during activity with chickens
If the allergic child holds a chick, we encourage the child to wear gloves
All children need to wash hands after touching the chicks in case there is any residue of egg protein, in addition to usual hygiene purposes."
