Local Library Eggs Deemed Safe to Eat
September 30, 2010
We don’t have to worry about the eggs we eat at our homes, they came from the local library! A couple years ago, MCPL’s Edgerton Branch incubated chicken eggs with the children at storytime. After everyone enjoyed the experience of hatching baby chicks, our family checked out books to learn how to build them a coop. Today, the hens live happily ever after with the librarian and her zoo of a family. You can raise chickens too! Don’t count yourself out just because you live in the city either. Many cities allow a limited amount of backyard poultry. Check with your local officials to find out the laws in your area, then swing by the library to find out everything you need to know about raising your own chickens. You can get many ideas for building attractive chicken coops from the library’s magazine subscription of Backyard Poultry. Build your coop now to be ready for spring chicks.
