Did you know that a hen can lay up to 300 eggs a year?! And that the eggs will only contain hatchlings if a rooster is present! The Safari Life Cycle of a Chicken set is superb for learning about the key phases in the life of a chicken. The Gallus domesticus (scientific name) starts off in an egg, hatches after about 21 days and is walking about within 24 hours. Three months later, all yellow feathers have dropped off and we have a full grown chicken. The set features three eggs in a nest, a hatching chick, an older chick and a white fully grown chicken. The miniatures are all superbly handpainted using non toxic paints and designed with accurate detail.
