This shows pics from the bulls eye to the baby chick!
Wow, that's so amazing! But how'd they do that...take those pics? Where's the egg shell?
I suspect the shell was removed at each stage.
I'm assuming that they killed a developing chick everyday to get those pictures????
So interesting. Thanks for sharing the link.
Would it be possible to open an egg, remove the membrane and developing chick and incubnate it in a ...petri dish maybe?? That's all I can think of that they might have done.
Either way it is interesting.
Yes the way they get those photos is to kill a chick at each day of development to photograph the changes. So at least 21 chicks died to make those photos. Interesting to see how they develop but I would prefer to see candling myself.
Quote:No, it wouldn't work. The shell is an integral part of the process and performs many functions.
What you can do is remove part of the shell and seal the hole with a glass slide. If this is done hygienically, the eggs can hatch.
VERY interesting. I have thought about doing something like that, but I don't think I could kill the little chick!
I wish there was a day next to each photo!
Seeing it like that, it does let me know what I'm seeing when I candle!
It DOES put a whole new perspective on candling. Thanks!
