Here We Go..

I thought you would enjoy seeing what goes on in the short 19-22 days of incubation for a baby chick. This is day 1.January 22ND.

Day 2.January 23rd.

Day 3.January 24Th.

"Candling" is a term used to describe a method by which bird breeders check to see if eggs are fertile or not. When an egg is candled, a bright light is held behind it, to illuminate the shape of the contents of the shell. The breeder will then determine whether or not the egg is fertile based on the color, shape, and opacity of the contents. This egg is being candled on day 1.
