Romano's Hatchery was an Egg Hatchery located near the northwestern coast of Dinotopia. The hatchery was owned and operated by the Romano family; Giorgio, Maria and their daughter Sylvia. It was also staffed by several other humans, including Alec Orchardwine, and dinosaurs, such as the Ovinutrix.
The Hatchery was a large structure built of stone, large enough to house sauropods and living quarters for the many humans and dinosaurs that oversaw it. The building was surrounded by pastureland providing food for the expecting dinosaurs inside.
The hatchery contained a nesting room with egg basins made of hardened clay and padded with ferns, a pipe organ that could be played with big feet, a resting chamber for relaxation, an incubation room kept at about 101 degrees fahrenheit, a human sleeping chamber capable of housing up to twelve hatchery workers, living and dining areas for humans, guest quarters, a windmill and a signal tower housing a faceted quartz stone.
Arthur and Will Denison were led to the Hatchery by Sylvia Romano shortly after arriving in Dinotopia in November of 1862. They spent a few days there, getting acquinted with the Dinotopian way of life, before departing for Waterfall City.
