    Does anyone has decent documentation about the heart rate of chicken embryo during incubation(especially the early stages) ?

    For my thesis I was assigned to monitor chicken eggs by using a digital microscope and capture the vascularization chorioallantoic membrane. Using image processing the heart rate of a chicken egg could be extracted. Therefore I would like to know what are standard heart rate values of chicken embryos during all incubation days.
