We are on Day 5 and if you are candling eggs today, this is what you may be seeing.
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?
- Reproductive organs begin to form
- Leg bones begin to form
- Crop begins to form
