Candling is the use of a bright light to shine through an egg to check fertility and embryology development. This candling video shows three kinds of eggs: "winners" (fertilized eggs with developing embryos), "quitters" (fertilized, but embryo stopped growing) and "yolkers" (unfertilized eggs). In the winners, you can see a healthy network of blood vessels and sometimes the eye spot. At day 7, chicken embryos are about the size of a dime. If you leave yolkers or quitters in your incubator, they will rot and get smelly, so we remove them from the incubator. Visit 4-H EGG Cam at lancaster.unl.edu/eggcam. Locally, the 4-H youth development program is a partnership between Nebraska Extension and Lancaster County government. Learn more about the Lancaster County 4-H program at lancaster.unl.edu/4h.

Pecking out of a shell is hard work for a baby chick. Hatching can take several hours, so the chick has to rest a lot during the process. This video is sped up 1,500 times. Original time was 56 minutes. Audio is from the end of hatch and not sped up (note: the electronic hum is the incubator motor). This chick is a white leghorn hybrid breed. As you can see from the other eggs starting to pip, it can take hours for that initial pipping stage. Visit 4-H EGG Cam at lancaster.unl.edu/eggcam. Locally, the 4-H youth development program is a partnership between Nebraska Extension and Lancaster County government. Learn more about the Lancaster County 4-H program at lancaster.unl.edu/4h.
