Candling Movie -
"4-H teaches science and life skills at school, home and on the Web".
When the movie starts - here is what you'll see: This embryo is eleven (11) days old (photos below). When you watch the movie, see if notice:
- The air sac inside the egg.
- The 11-day old chicken embryo (see how much bigger it is than the 6-day old embryo) moving inside the egg. The movements are much stronger than the 6-day old embryo!
- A network of blood vessels (appears orange in the light)
Photos of the 11-Day Old Embryo:
PHOTO 1: Do you see the shadow of the embryo in this egg? Look for the dark spot. If you need help, see PHOTO 3 in the last box (Click on the image for a larger view)
PHOTO 2 - EMBRYO: Here is what the embryo would look like if you removed it from the egg. Can you find the eyes, the beak, the wings, and the legs/feet?
PHOTO 3. (PHOTO 1 + PHOTO 2 = PHOTO 3): The picture of the embryo (Photo 2) was added to PHOTO 1. Now you can see how the embryo inside the egg really looks. Compare the pictures. (Click on image for larger view)
