candling eggs

On the eleventh day of incubation, we candled a couple of the chicken eggs.


Shining a bright light behind the warm little egg, you can just make out a mass in the middle of it, and veining lines all around. Such an insight for the children, such excitement, and talk of their own growth when they were so tiny themselves, but a heartbeat and a flutter. Just a few more days of watching the eggs tipping in their turner inside the incubator, and then we’ll remove the egg turner and watch for more signs of life. I’m working on the chicken coop, and will show you my process next. Come back soon!
