Can you hear chicks heartbeat through shell with stethoscope?

    Just curious. Has anyone tried to listen to the little chicks heartbeats?

    Never tried? Don't have one anymore or I would go see.

    They make a machine that does so I would figure you could.

    I think the heart is too small for an ordinary stethoscope.

    I don't think I have ever heard the heartbeat, but I have heard some knocking to get out! It's really cool!
