A video of hatching chicks we made for UCanHatchUs - a company based in Perth, Western Australia. They'll bring the chick or duck eggs and incubator to your home, school, library, nursing home, childcare centre and you can watch them hatch.
The eggs actually start hatching within 2 days and the whole program is for 12 days. They also do Duck eggs/duckings. For more details visit www.ucanhatchus.com.au
We made this video with a Canon EOS 500D. We went through a few memory cards and took ~ 8 hours to film it all. I tried here to compress 8 hours in 6min!
The chicks go through cycles of movement and rest. Poor little fellows - they get so exhausted. I guess when some chicks move around - they spur the others on.
