Have You Ever Wondered Where Chickens Come From??

When a hen ovulates, the result is a yolk, which can be fertilized internally by sperm from a rooster.  The yolk, whether it’s fertilized or not, is then covered by egg white and then eggshell before the egg is laid. Stages of chicken development after laying:

Day 3: Nose, legs and wings begin to form

Day 6: Beak begins to form

Day 10:  Beak begins to harden

Day 15: Scales, claws and beak getting ready to break the shell

Day 18: Yolk will enter the body cavity of the developing chick

Day 21: Chick hatches!!

…and word to the wise: The eggs we buy in the grocery store are not fertilized, so although a fertilized egg may pass through the cracks once in a very long while, the usual grocery store egg will not develop a chick…..
