The turkeys headed to a farm. We will be having some Black Cochin bantams hatching on May 25th. Visit here for resources on incubation, candling and more.
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.
On January 7, many of our local schools were closed due to severe weather. Our staff worked with teachers to make sure the eggs were set in the classrooms. We did put together an introduction video for teachers, students and families to watch to learn more about embryology and the eggs they are hatching.
In 2014, we took video of the candling on January 15 - 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!
