    But the egg was infertile, so we don't know if this method would work. [​IMG] Has anyone tried this successfully?

    yeah i was confused! that'd be awesome if it could work though! LOL


    my concern is right before the chick possibly hatches it would have no air cell to pip up into so what if it kept trying for the bottom of the cup? And it would drown and i'd be scared to assist it and bump blood vessles. Otherwise it sounds pretty interesting if it could work.

    I think it was a teenager just being obnoxious. Strange humor....maybe?

    Weird... I think he more or less believes what he's saying, if you look at some of his other videos, he DOES seem to have an interest in poultry (and car crashes). Looks like he has hatched quail (in incubator, not cups!!!!).

    Ummmmm, I think he obviously left a LOT of info out, like.... temp/heat source! ????

    Weird.

    If anyone managed to get some development, I bet it would end up a horrible mess... I can't imagine veinous development successfully attaching to a paper cup instead of membrane/eggshell...
