Opening the Hatch - - by THEMSELVES!

(Photo borrowed- not mine)
Did you know that baby chicks have a little apparatus on the top edge of their beaks that help them drill out of their shells?  It is called an "egg tooth", and as the chick grows, it will fall off because it is no longer needed!
In honor of Spring, and all things Bright and Broody - here's a cute little video that I thought was so sweet and I'm going to share it with you.  Enjoy!

Loved the video! Wouldn't it be fun to watch a clutch of eggs hatch out like that in person!
