Teachers and 4-H volunteers continue to turn the eggs three times a day. Each time they turn the eggs, they read and record the temperature inside the incubator (which should be about 100 degrees) and the humidity (which should be 45-55%). Below is a picture of Abby Baldwin turning the eggs. Ms. Lindsey, from Dana Elementary School, sent photos of candling eggs on Day 11. She included one chicken egg, where you can clearly see the air space at one end of the egg. The rest of the egg is already “full” of the chick. Look for the picture of the quail embryo with the large black dot. This is the eye. Do you see which egg is infertile in the pictures?

One other thing you may find interesting:  we encourage teachers to put a sign on the outlet that they use for their incubator, “Please do not unplug.”  This little sign is an important part of keeping the eggs warm, moist, and protected. The incubator is the closest thing we can get to a mother hen.
