Incubation day 6

Well today is day 6 of the incubation of the Rhode Island Red chickens..The temperature has been constantly between 37.4 and 37.6oC and the humidity between 30% and 35%,I candled one egg last night and saw 'the red spider' inside the egg which indicates the egg is fertile and there is an embryo growing in there at now 6 days old. The 'red spider' is the chicken and the veins coming from it absorbing the yolk into the chickens body. *Can you see the tiny dark bit with veins coming away from it? that is the chicken emryo!

I will candle again at day 8 or 9 and update again on the blog....

More Soon
