The Birds and the Bees... Chicken Style

You have a flock of hens and you collect eggs from them. Maybe, you have a rooster, too. You know that if the rooster is doing his job properly (and mine always seem to!) you can allow a hen to go broody or set the eggs yourself in an incubator and about 21 days later, a clutch of fluffy chicks hatch. Perhaps, you candle your eggs to watch the growing embryo form. But, how does the egg form inside your hen? How does fertilization happen?

The design of this fascinating process is fantastic. Come on over and we'll have "The Talk".
