    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 was a Welsummer egg


    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.

    These are especially nice when eating an omlet, like I am right now [​IMG]
