Though it maybe a little gross it was a great learning experience for the kids. They got to see how they develop and what they looked like mid development. We candled them while in the eggs but you can't see detail like the real thing. We also seen one a lot further than this that stopped growing but I forgot to snap a picture.
I am however not a person that likes to wait so I took a trip to Tractor Supply Company and bought me 6 fluffy butts! They are so cute and I love having baby chicks around.
