Virtual Egg Hatch – Day #7

On day # 7 

  • A row of feather germs appears on the tail.

  • The sclera of the eye begins to form.

  • Feather papillae appear on the thigh.

  • The leg bends at the knee.

I am finding this day by day so amazing. Usually I don’t give the eggs much thought during the first couple weeks, other than to keep the temp and humidity on target of course. But that the beak is already developing and the legs are bending- that’s just amazing. 

I’m looking forward to candeling them in the next couple of days, I hope I can take pictures too but we’ll have to see. Here are the MRI scans from day 7.
