    To listen to the egg with a stethoscope to see if you could hear a heartbeat when they are pretty much along in developing?

    i would have to stay very still and hold my breathe for a second and sometimes i could hear the chick pecking at the egg or it could have been movement but to me it sounded like i made the chick mad by putting it on the egg to listen to it lol [​IMG]
