Chick Hatchery

California Science Center official statement

The California Science Center/Museum of Science and Industry has exhibited chicks for decades and has inspired many of our guests to pursue further learning in the biological sciences. The chicks are humanely euthanized and donated to a wildlife rehabilitation center to be used to help nurse sick and injured animals back to health. The care and welfare we provide to the chicks is consistent with the standards of our colleague institutions throughout the country with similar exhibits.
