2022 CFC Birdy Hour with Stephanie Ellis
Life in the Egg
Have you ever wondered how chicks develop within an egg? This informative lecture will take you through avian reproduction, how eggs are produced, egg incubation and the development of a chick within the egg. Stephanie will also touch upon the different types of development within the bird world. You will never look at an egg the same way!
