    hi, im just curious about this matter. i've seen many videos on chick development and candling. i recently watched a video about the 21 day incubation of a chicken egg and i became curious and fascinated on how they do it? but i thinks they're only breaking open the poor egg. but is it possible? to grow a chick on a petri dish? if possible, how can i do it? can someone help me?
    thanks! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have no clue, but it's neat to see day to day development! I don't like the whole breaking an egg a day thing, but it does teach how the embryo grows and changes. Even to view possible problems, is neat.
