DOES ANY ONE KNOW HOW TO CHECK IF AN EGG HAS A CHICK IN IT??
Yes, there are several good threads on candling here.
Hit the search and use candling as a keyword, you'll find everything you want to know!
THANKS a bunch
im sorry rooster-red i dont need to learn about candling eggs I need to see about finding out if an egg has a chick in it!
If you want to find out if an egg has a chick in it, you need to candle it. Look at the learning center on candling. Those are pictures of chicks are various stages of development.
Do you mean when you crack it open, how to tell if the egg is fertile? There won't be a chick in it until it is incubated for awhile and there is no way to tell from the outside of an egg if it is fertile until you incubate it and candle it or you crack it open and look for the bullseye on the yolk. Here is a post I made awhile back with pictures of infertile vs fertile eggs:
oh thanks for the advice. but I figured it out by hearing the egg if it makes a sound, its fertile
Quote:Would you mind sharing that with us?
Yeah, I too would love to know what a fertile eggs sounds like! If you could please describe the sound you hear, that would be great!
