Chick Development inside the Egg: From Egg to Parrot
Useful Information: Breeders' Resources (covers everything from handfeeding to potential breeding / chick problems) ... Incubation Information ... Information on Housing Chicks, Temperature Requirements, etc.
This webpage features two photo series that show the growth of an embryo in an egg. The eggs were candled and then photographed. The process of candling allows you to view the interior of an egg ...
- The series of images (and the most life-like) courtesy of Brinsea - the leaders in egg incubation
- The amazing "Inside View" graphic is courtesy of Susanne Russo.
- The next photo series was produced by the University of California, Davis. It features candled eggs -- Day 1 through Day 17 (please click on photos for enlarged images, with additional information).
- Next, the photos of candled cockatiel eggs - courtesy of the Parrot Society of United Kingdom -- including some incredible hatching photos.
