Day 16 Observations
-----------------------------------------------

Still more of our chicks, from the batch started the week before the MRI chicks, have hatched overnight ! More are hatching right now. Watch here or on "Today's News" for video or photos.

Also coming soon - the sounds of the MRI machine.

Even though today is the last day of the MRI labs, the project continues at many schools. Watch here and on Today's News for new info.


The chick continues to grow - it looks very cramped in there now!. In some views you can see the beak poking toward the air sac.

There is a lot of movement -more than yesterday. The head is moving up to 1 cm over a period of a few minutes.


MRI: Front views.
Here are some front views. Positions (offset) are indicated:

Frame 86 Frame 88
Frame 86: -4mm Frame 88: -2mm

MRI: Side views.
Here are some side views. Positions (offset) are indicated:

Frame 60
Frame 60: +4mm

In this image you can see a spot between and below the eyes. This is probably an air passage - either the mouth or a nasal or sinus passage. It is dark because there is no longer any fluid in it - the chick is breathing air from the air cell!
