Egg to Chick Development DAY 14 video pg 2

I just recently started my first hatch of 2009,  I set 23 eggs!  yay   Today is Day 8!
I decided to pick one egg (Japanese) and candle it everyday to see if I could capture the day-to-day development.  There may be some different eggs here too, but for the most part you will be viewing a BTW japanese egg.   Pics will be added at least every couple of days!  smile

I had pics from day 1, then realized there was no memory card in my camera for Days 1 and 2  doh  , and when I got to Day 5, my mini  light wasn't strong enough to capture the veining in detail.   I did manage to get a pic at Day 5 but failed to do so for Days 6 and 7.    Day 8 is when I was able to rig something up so my light was strong enough to see what was going on but not overshadow the development.

So, starting at day 3, here is the progression of a BTW japanese chick.



DAY 3 (Sat. 3/14)

DAY  5  (Mon. 3/16)

As you can tell, the egg looks very dark because my light wasn't strong enough to shine through the egg.

DAY 11   (Sun. 3/22)

DAY 12   (Mon. 3/23)

It's getting harder to get clear pics of the developing chick.   I guess she's getting so big now that her body is blocking out the light causing the top of the egg to be too dark and making everything a blur.
I'm hoping I can get pics at least through Day 18!

DAY 16   (Fri. 3/27)
Now I'm having to set the egg in the candler and shine the mini mag light from the top to be able to see!
I didn't do it with the cochin and silkie eggs, but I did use both on the jap egg, and there's a big difference!

Re: Egg to Chick Development DAY 14 video pg 2

I was getting fustrated about the pics but finally rigged up something to allow more space between the light and the egg.   Now all I should have to do is adjust the space to move the light closer to the egg for the remaining incubation time.  smile


Hope ya'll enjoy the pics!  smile

Glad this thread is helping you Jae!  smile


I'm excited about taking the pics.   I usually candle at 7, 14, and 18 days, but I love being able to see the difference from one day to the next.

Love it, those shots are great in their own right, let alone how informative they are.

When I was into photography, night shots and shots like that were one of the things I experimented with alot; you did a great job getting those pics to look that good. wtga clap
