4-H Embryology Program


About the Plymouth County 4-H Embryology Program

 Plymouth County Extension 4-H Program is offering a 4-H Embryology Program to schools and libraries for the spring season.  

The Plymouth County Extension Office offers rentals of incubators, fertile chicken eggs, curriculum books, posters and more for a small fee. This 4-H program teaches youth about developmental biology and responsibility of caring for a living creature. 

 The program takes a minimum of one month to complete as the chicks will hatch within 21 days of being incubated.  

The Plymouth County Extension Office will provide training on how to operate the incubators and will provide trouble shooting assistance with the program.   


We offer all the supplies that you need to do Embryology in the classroom


Materials Available:
