Candling is basically shining a bright light at an egg in a dark room to see how the embryos are growing. This candling video shows two kinds of eggs: "winners" (fertilized eggs with developing embryos) and a "quitter" (fertilized, but embryo stopped growing) and "yolkers". In the winners, you can see a healthy network of blood vessels and sometimes the eye spot, beak and toes. At day 14, chicken embryos are a little larger than the size of a nickel. At this stage of development, we don't find yolkers because they were removed from the incubator at the day 7 candling. If you leave 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.

This is Nebraska Extension in Lancaster County’s candling presentation given 7 days after eggs are placed in incubators in local classrooms as a part of the 4-H Embryology school enrichement program. After answering students’ questions, the room lights are turned off and presenter has small groups of students come to the incubator to see eggs be candled. The class keeps track of how many winners, quitters and yolkers are in their incubator. Quitters and yolkers are removed so they don’t rot. Note: the last half of this video is the same footage as our YouTube video “Candling Chick Eggs at Day 7” at https://youtu.be/Uyr_jIiSkJ0. You may watch eggs hatch on 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.
