- Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
- How do those chirping fluff balls fit inside those little eggs?
- How do they break out of their shells?
- Why are some chicks so yellow and others not so?
Are they served with parmesan sauce?

A Most "Egg-citing" Youth Services Program
This is the most egg-citing youth services program ever to appear at my library since I became a roving reporter last December. It is eggs-actly the type of event you don't want to miss! If you will eggs-cuse these awful puns, I will tell you all about it in eggs-quisite detail.
Before I began reporting breaking news for the library, there was a baby chicks thing happening almost a year ago. Here are some photos from last year's grand event.

Eggs a Plenty! But Before Long . . .

May I Place a Take-Out Order?
(Scowl-Face said I should stop thinking about food because I get bowls full of special kitty chow and should be happy with that. Guess it's time to sulk in the corner.)
You will be amazed at this miracle of life-in-the-making that will unfold before your very eyes! Watch eggs become chicks! But when will it all happen? The eggs arrive on March 15, and the estimated hatching date is April 4. The library will be asking for families to volunteer to foster pairs of new baby chicks (where can I sign up?) Why pairs? Baby chicks thrive in pairs. For me, it's all about serving size.
If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by MPL Youth Services and talk with Broadway Gal, Wild Thang, or Supreme Cat-aloger Gal. They will be happy to
take your orders answer your queries.
