Photo of developing egg

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I accidentally broke one of the eggs my broody hen is sitting on. I feel terrible. But since it was already broken, I opened it up to see how they were developing and wanted to share. This egg is about a week old. You can already see the wings and of course the eyes. She has 9 more eggs, although I don't know how many are fertile.

So sorry that happened to you and for the loss!

Thank you for sharing your picture.  That's amazing!!!

18 layers of various breeds and 8 cute chicks... and a broody sitting on the last chicks produced by our Super Blue roo and Super Blue pullet.

 

RIP Gus, our beautiful Super Blue rooster.  May you live on through your beautiful chicks!

That is an amazing pic. At least you did it accidentally. My first hatch I thought I had a quitter and opened it to find just about what you found. I felt like crap. I stopped taking out anything that was questionable.
