    I am last minute fill in for my niece's first grade class today, teaching about chickens. One of the things I want to talk with them about is how the egg is formed. Nit the baby chicken, but the eggs we eat. I know there is a fabulous chart for this, that is drawn, nit a graphic photo. I haev googled for an hour and for some reason cannot find it. Do any of you have it handy? Thank you!

    Thank you for those. I saw them and they are very helpful. The one I am looking for shows from entering the oviduct and also shows the bloom being applied at the end, and it was all in a chicken, not just a picture of the the oviduct. The one with the chicken is just missing the bloom being added, and I was hoping for that. It was a brilliant chart and I really hope I can locate it!
