The incubation is still going along fine. I am pretty sure that the two Brahma eggs are blanks and will be pulled out after day 10. They are not showing any sign of development at all. The rest of the eggs seem to be chugging along quite nicely!
On Day 8:
- Tail feathers are beginning to form
- Eyelids are forming
- Egg tooth is forming (this is a bump on the beak that helps a new chick break through the shell)
- Bone marrow is beginning to form in the legs
