Here is the exciting news now that the chicks are a full week old:
Three rows of feather germs are visible on the tail.
The nictitating membranes (inner eye lids) begins to form.
The egg tooth begins to form.
The bone marrow cavity of the femur begins to form.
It looks like they candeled their egg for this picture- I hope I have the same luck. Maybe tomorrow…..
Here are some of my favorite pictures from a duck egg hatch we did with a local school system. That brave teacher let them roam all over the classroom! They dressed him up too- remember the Wonder Duck show? Is that even on any more?
