Egg Hatching 101: Day 10 Claws, Comb and Beak

egg at 5 and 10 days

We are on Day 10... almost halfway there! The image above shows the difference that just five days makes. Chicks grow quickly.

On Day 10:

  • Claws are forming

  • The comb has appeared

  • Flight feathers (on wings) and chest feathers are developing

  • Lower eyelids are developing

  • Beak begins to harden
