Updated January 10, 2017 - Expected Hatch Dates January 25/26
The first embryology session has started in Lancaster County, Nebraska. Students are caring for fertile eggs in 64 classrooms. This year we are back to hatching white egg layer chickens (white Leghorn). We will do a live candling Friday January 13th at 10:30 a.m. CT if you would like to see what developing chicken embryos look like on day 9 of incubation.
Thank you to Willie Strickland and GQF Manufacturing in Savannah, Georgia. GQF Manufacturing for designing and building a special incubator for us. This incubator lid has a large viewing area which enables us to see more of what's going on in the incubator during the hatch.
Day 7 of incubation. You'll see moving embryos, parts of the egg, what eggs look like when the embryo stops growing and eggs that were never fertile. View here.
Be sure to stop by and join us on the 4-H EGG Cam Facebook page!
