This interactive presentation by Wild Care Executive Director Stephanie Ellis Covers the basics of avian reproduction from start to finish – and begs the question, which came first, the chicken or the egg? Learn about the avian reproductive cycle by examining reproductive anatomy, fertilization, egg production, incubation, and how a chick develops within an egg. We will visually dissect the various components within an egg and understand why eggs are one of the most delicate, yet perfect things on the planet. You will never look at an egg the same way again! This program is co-sponsored with Wild Care, Inc.
