    Last time I did the Kordon breathing bag experiment and hatched out a little chick named Kordon. Also the same time I did the window project, the window project was me taking a section of the shell off to watch the chick grow inside the egg, but it only made it to day 16. Before last time when I did the Kordon breathing bag experiment and made it to day 19, but I never gave up and 2 months later tried again and had it hatch out. That showed to never give up and I think like last time, this can work.
    Next is my new one I never tried is putting 2 duck eggs white and yoke in the same bag (Both Duck).

    Chicken Embryo Pics Day 0-18

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/chicken-embryo-growing






    Chicken During Incubation:

    Day 1:

    6 to 10 h - First kidney-like cells (pronephros) begin to form.

    8 h -Appearance of primitive streak.

    10 h -Yolk sac (embryonic membrane) begins. Functions include: a) blood formation; b) yolk digestion; c) yolk absorption; d) food provision after hatching. Mesoderm appears; embryo oriented at 90° angle to egg's long axis; mesonephros begins.

    18 h -Primitive gut begins; primordial germ cells appear in germinal crescent.

    20 h -Vertebral column begins.

    21 h -Appearance of neural groove, nervous system.

    22 h -Appearance of first pair of somites (block-like segments) and head.

    23 to 24 h -Blood islands, vitelline (yolk sac) circulation, blood, heart,blood vessels begin (2 to 4 somites).


    Day 2:

    25 h -Appearance of eye; vertebral column visible; embryo begins to turn on left side (6 somites).

    28 h -Ear begins (7 somites).

    30 h -Amnion (embryonic membrane around embryo) begins. Primary function is to protect embryo against shock and sticking; also responsible for some albumen absorption. Chorion (embryonic membrane that fuses with allantois) begins; heartbeat begins (10 somites).

    38 h -Cranial flexure and torsion evident; heartbeat moves blood (16 to 17 somites).

    42 h -Thyroid begins.

    48 h -Anterior pituitary and pineal glands begin to develop.


    Day 3:

    50 h -Embryo turns on left side; allantois (embryonic membrane that fuses with chorion) begins. Functions of chorioallantois are: a) respiration; b) albumen absorption; c) absorption of calcium from shell; d) storage of kidney excretions.

    60 h -Nasal pits, pharynx, lungs, anterior limb buds begin.

    62 h -Posterior limb buds begin.

    72 h -Middle and outer ear, trachea begin; amnion completes growth around embryo.


    Day 4: Tongue and esophagus begin; embryo separates from yolk sac; allantois grows through amnion; contractions occur in amnion wall; adrenal development begins; pronephros (nonfunctional kidney) disappears; metanephros (definitive or final kidney) begins; proventriculus, gizzard, ceca, large intestine begin. Pigment visible in eye (dark eye).


    Day 5: Reproductive system and differentiation of sex appear; thymus, bursa of Fabricius, duodenal loop begin; chorion and allantois begin to fuse; mesonephros begins to function; first cartilage present.


    Day 6: Beak appears; voluntary movement begins; chorioallantois (chorion fused with allantois) lies against shell near large end of egg.


    Day 7: Digits appear; comb growth begins; egg tooth begins; melanin produced; absorption of mineral from shell begins. Chorioallantois is attached to inner shell membrane and growth around the inner surface is progressing.


    Day 8: Father tracts appear; parathyroid begins; bone calcification begins.


    Day 9: Growth of chorioallantois about 80% complete (still open at small end); mouth opening appears.


    Day 10: Beak begins to harden; digits completely separated.


    Day 11: Abdominal walls established; loops of intestine begin to protrude into the yolk sac; down feathers visible; comb and wattles visible; claws and scales appear on toes; mesonephros reaches maximum level of function, then begins to degenerate; metanephros begins to function.


    Day 12: Chorioallantois completes enclosure of egg contents; embryo water content begins to decrease.


    Day 13: Cartilaginous skeleton is relatively complete; embryo heat production and oxygen consumption begin to increase rapidly.


    Day 14: Embryo begins to turn head toward large end of egg; long bone ossification becomes rapid. Turning of egg no longer essential.


    Day 15: Intestinal loops easily seen in yolk sac; contraction of amnion ceases.


    Day 16: Beak, claws, and scales relatively cornified; albumen is practically gone and yolk increasingly important as food source; down feathers cover body; intestinal loops begin to retract into body.


    Day 17: Amniotic fluid decreases; embryo positioning head toward large end, toward right wing with beak toward air cell; definitive feathers begin.


    Day 18: Blood volume decreases, total blood hemoglobin decreases. Embryo should be in proper position to hatch: embryo's long axis the same as long axis of egg; head in large end of egg; head to right and under right wing; beak pointed toward air cell; feet toward head.


    Day 19: Intestinal loop retraction complete; yolk sac begins to enter body cavity; amniotic fluid (swallowed by embryo) disappears; beak may pierce air cell and lungs begin to function (pulmonary respiration).


    Day 20: Yolk sac completely drawn into body; air cell pierced, followed by functioning of pulmonary respiration; embryo makes sounds; chorioallantoic circulation, respiration, and absorption decrease; embryo may pip shell.


    Day 21: Hatching process: chorioallantoic circulation ceases; embryo breaks shell over air cell with egg tooth; embryo slowly rotates in egg counterclockwise, chipping and breaking shell as it does; embryo kicks and attempts to straighten neck, pushes shell open; kicks free of shell, rests, straightens, dries.


    >Day 21: Some embryos are unable to hatch but survive beyond the normal hatching time.

    What kind of eggs? chicken? My incubator is full, it has duck and guinea eggs in it. I don't know if the guinea eggs are going to be any good I will candle them in 10 days to find out.
