Egg Hatching 101: Day 9


I've been candling the eggs most nights to continue tracking the development of our eggs. Two may be pulled out tomorrow due to no development (I like to wait until day 10 to make final decisions on blanks but that's just my opinion). We've got some pretty active little chicks in those eggs, and they can often be seen dancing around in there in reaction to the light. I don't want to stress them out, so I keep the candling process very short.

On Day 9:
  • Reproductive organs begin to form
  • Crop & bones continue forming
