Egg Hatching 101: Day 5

We are on Day 5 and if you are candling eggs today, this is what you may be seeing.


Early Embryonic Development


This is a drawing of what you are seeing in the photo above. (Drawing credits: University of Illinois) In the photo you can clearly make out the "red blob" in the center, which you can compare to the drawing. Yep, that's a baby chick in there!


So what is happening today in our incubator?

DAY 5:

  • Reproductive organs begin to form

  • Leg bones begin to form

  • Crop begins to form













This post is part of a series about hatching eggs on The Farm at Beaman’s Fork blog.
