Kids' Events Highlights
Here Chickadee! Why did the chicken cross the road? To come to the Lincoln Library, of course!
Children ages 12 and younger are invited to attend an educational presentation about how chickens are raised at nearby Casey Farm and what precautions are taken to protect them from predators as well as what a chicken eats. They’ll learn about different bird eggs, meet a Dominique chicken, and even hold baby chicks. You can even try to guess which bird produced each egg. Casey Farm will have a selection of eggs ranging from the humming birds up to the Ostrich.
The program takes place on Thursday, April 24th at 10:00 AM. Don’t miss this fun-filled event—it’s definitely something to crow about! Participation is limited and registration is required. Please call the children's room with questions or to register.
