What’s happening to the chick on Day 18?

Our chick is continuing to turn slowly towards the end of the egg where the air cell is.  It’s here the ‘egg tooth’ will first break through the inner membrane and then the shell.  The yolk will nourish the chick during its last days of incubation but will also be important in keeping it well nourished for the first day after hatching.
