Join us for an embryology adventure in partnership with 4-H! During our first week, we will learn about life inside an egg through a process called candling. Learn something fun and interesting every week until our chicks hatch. This will be a fun in-person indoor program. Masks are required and physical distancing measures are in place. Appropriate for students in grades 3-5. No registration required.
Swing by Anythink Perl Mack this month to check out our chicks. In collaboration with Adams County 4-H, we'll check in on fertilized chicken eggs in our incubator as they develop and hatch at the library. Life cycle activities will be available to take home for elementary-aged kids, while supplies last.
Anythink's embryology tradition continues! On May 20 at 2 pm, join Ms. Sheila to learn more about life inside an egg. She'll use a process known as candling to show you how the chicks are developing inside of their shells. Gather the whole family to watch, connect and ask questions.
This program will be held online via GoToMeeting. A link to the program will be sent out via email next week to registrants. Everyone is welcome to sit in, but please only register once per household.
Discover life inside an egg. Join us as we check on the progress of our chicks. We will use a process called candling to view the growth and development of the embryos inside the eggs. Appropriate for all ages. No registration required.
Embryology is a fun way to learn about life. Meet our eggs and investigate the inside of an egg. Discover what we hope will hatch from our eggs this year.
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.
Witness the miracle of life with Anythink and 4-H as we use light to examine chicken eggs from our incubator. Are there any growing chick embryos inside? Let's find out together! Appropriate for all ages. No 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.
Spring is my favorite time of year. I love everything about it. I love the clean smell of the rain, I love feeling the spring sunshine again, and I love seeing the first spring flowers peeking up through the snow. This spring, as the saying goes, has "come in like a lion," and I thought the snow would never end. But it seems it finally has, and summer is quick approaching. I've been itching to really get my hands dirty in the new community garden and start eating fresh food again.
