Straight from egg to chick: without a shell

A group of high school students from Chiba, Japan used a unique method instructed by their teacher to hatch a chick with a plastic cup and cling wrap.

As an egg is cracked, the yolk and white is placed in the plastic cup and covered with cling wrap.

The plastic cup is then placed in an incubator. Every day something is forming in the cup; first is the placenta, then the tiny blood vessels, followed by the embryo and the larger blood vessels.

Then emerges the little chick from the plastic cup and by day 21, the little chick is walking on the lab floor.

Pretty amazing experiment to watch life form and unfold right before the eyes.
