    Very interesting and a cool science experiment. But it seems like a lot more work/steps than just putting an egg in an incubator. I'd also like to know how many of the the eggs they cracked actually developed. There was only one chick running around at the end.

    because there is no egg to hatch from. Close to the end you see a wet chick curled up starting to move around in the cup
