He is gone so now I am your teacher, back to bussiness.
Today we will be talking about the two out of four parts of incubation. Which are tempaeature and humidity.
What kind of eggs are they?
Where is my teacher?
I thought I was the teacher here!
The other two are turning the eggs and humidity.
Well you are not teaching me anything like a teacher is supposed to.
Remeber if the humidity is two low at hatch time the chicks will have troble hatching.
Lets talk about some of the temporary organs in the embryo.
Now a chicken is my teacher!
I feel like am going to lay another chicken egg.
I know, but it isn't. We could see the heart beating and blood ressals.
The temperature should be between 99 degrees and l0l degrees. If it is lower than 92 degrees or higher than 105 degrees the chick will die. In the incubator the air should be fresh and unpolluted, so do not use marker to lable your eggs and do not use strong chemicals.
What Angelina I am tired of guessing!
Ok, so we candled today and the chicken embryo look like a question mark!
Hey! Guess what Bob!
When you turn the eggs make sure you wash hands before and after turning the eggs. Gently turn the eggs also turn the eggs an odd number of times each day to make sure they do not sleep on the same side each night. Do not turn them three days before the expected hatch.
Also the scals, feathers, and claws are completly formed.
Today was day 15 and the albumen is almost gone!
I know! We saw the embryo turn to the blunt end of the egg!
Ok, so one of the temporary organs is the allantois it has two uses one it collects the waste of the embryo, yes a embryo poops too. The other one is the Respiration which is the embryo's lungs and so it helps the embryo breath. The Amnion is protection for the embryo. It is located around the embryo.
5 days latter....
Hey mom! Today was day 20!
Yeah, but the yolk sac is in the chicks abdomen.
One more day untill the chicks hatch!
It also broke into the air cell and took its first breath and became a chick!
