Amy, our good friend from 4-H, will be at Anythink Brighton to candle eggs to see how many new chickens might be hatched at the library. She will use a light machine to look into the shells and observe the development of the embryo. Stay afterwards for a special chick storytime and chick crafts. Appropriate for ages 3 and up. Space is limited; registration required.
I had never seen a chick being born. Even when I was a young child living with my parents (and we had a chicken coop in the backyard), my only contact was when I was feeding them or gathering eggs. There was never a situation where I got to see a chick being born. I’m kind of sad about that now. To have the responsibility of making sure that the right conditions were met and that eggs were being properly taken care of to ensure birth would have been a wonderful life lesson for me.
