Foster Chick Care 2014!

Get Ready!

Ages 7 & up. Would you like to learn how to provide a foster home for three or more baby chicks? Before you can take a chick home, you and a parent must attend a chick care class to learn about the care of chicks and pass a test.  We have found that older students are able to take more responsibility and combine the experience with academic projects. 

12 students will have the chance to raise three chicks from April 22nd- May 4th.  Registration begins at 8 AM on April 9th at 8 AM!  (Typically the program is full within 2 minutes after registration opens.)

Why is registration so limited? We have over 36 chicks to care for through this experience and have found it important to give each student quality supervision and guidance, for what could be, a once in a life time experience.

*** NEW
We will be raising ducklings in Youth Services for the week of April 28th - May 3rd!  This will be a fun new addition to our Spring Eggstravaganza!

We will not be hatching chicks at the Library this year. Our dear friend, Doug Akers, has retired and not available.
