Pasquotank County 4-H received a gift from Pasquotank County Farm Bureau. This monetary gift allowed the purchase of 10 new incubators that were used in March at the ECPPS elementary schools to conduct the 4-H embryology program. This year 16 classrooms at 5 elementary schools participated in the three-week program that teaches 2nd grade children about the life cycle by having them hatch chickens from eggs.

Pictured below are students from a 2nd grade class from Northside Elementary school. The students are observing Mason Lawrence the 4-H agent candling the egg so that students can look inside the egg and see the baby chicken growing.
