    sorry I dont remember who wanted to see these but I figured they might be better in their own thread so any who dont want to see them dont have to. As sad as they are I still think they are cool. This dosnt gross me out at all but I realize it might some people. We have documented all our eggs & the dc are making a book for our school project. These are some of the clearest pictures.

    this one obviously didnt make it too far [​IMG]

    another not very far

    my guess was this one made it about 15 days??? 3 different angles so you can see the veins & stuff

    This is the one that we thought was dead but wasnt [​IMG] It was so perfectly formed & it was moving & kicking & everything [​IMG]

    This egg came from my uncles chickens. Hen was a white silkie & Rooster was a RIR/Barred Rock cross I believe

    That is very cool. Interesting to see the progression of a chick's formation and the size ratio.

    I have a poster I got from Hy-Line feed for free with each of the 21 days. My preschool kids thought it was gross but cool - they don't connect that the embryo had to be dead to get that picture. It doesn't show them with the yolk or egg shell.
