Tonight marks day 14 of incubating chickens eggs. If your new to this series check out part one and part two. This is the most exciting time to candle, especially if you have kids around, it’s so magical to watch the baby chicks move around inside of the egg.
The embryo is well-developed, taking up 3/4 of the egg. If you were to break open the egg today, you would see a well formed feathered chick with toes and claws. From now on the egg will continue to get darker and it will be harder to see the baby.
In just four days I will be putting the eggs into what is called “lockdown” and I will candle them for the very last time.
And one week from today marks hatch day!!
Stay tuned for part three, lockdown.
In case you missed it… Check out part one, incubating chicks.
