growing berds in jars

Post by mehdi71000 » Tue May 22, 2007 2:18 am

Hi every body :idea:
I had this idea that an egg shell it’s a shell right. What if I sterilized a small jar, and carefully opened the egg so it’s not damaged and placed the content inside a jar and incubated it . Would the chick grow? :D

You are always thinking of these ideas. It would be presumptuous of me to say either they do or dont. How about an experiment to find out, shouldnt be too expensive right?

I tell you what, leave developing chicks alone - go down to the supermarket and buy some eggs. Empty one into your jar and leave it for a week. Then try to cook and eat it. Hey it should work right if a shell is just a shell?

I know you arent serious, but just in case: taking eggs from wild birds is vastly illegal in many countries.

You could always go to a farm near you and buy a fertilized chicken egg from someone. The store ones are not fertilized. The farmers dont sell those to the store.

You have to administer the right temperature by the way, like how the mother chick sits on the egg all the time.

It's actually not unusual to uncover embryos for observation - it doesn't involve removing the whole shell, just the part above the embryo, but it seems like removing the shell is at least possible.

It's very difficult to remove the shell and not rupture the membrane underneath it, though.

Dose the underneath membrane needs to be intact? I thought it’s just like making an omelette :shock:

I'm sure he was, but no its actually true - taking wild birds' eggs is illegal in many places. Certainly here in the UK...it has a specific name and everything (not that I can remember it).
