Product Description
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

If you are ready to explore how an egg becomes a sweet little ball of fluff, look no further! This set includes 12 images (a total of 24), both color and black and white, that tracks the development of a fertilized chicken egg through several selected stages and hatching.

* an egg clutch
* fertilized egg
* embryo, day 4
* embryo, day 10
* embryo, day 14
* embryo, day 19
* chick pipping the shell
* chick unzipping the shell (continued pipping)
* hatching
* newly hatched chick
* newly hatched chick, dry and sleeping with other eggs
* two day-old chicks together

All of my clips are hand drawn and colored, done with ink and colored pencil on paper and then converted to digital files.
Each image has color and black and white line options (unless otherwise noted) saved as high resolution transparent .png files (300 dpi).
