Embryo in shell communication

Postby Pajarita » Wed Jul 24, 2019 9:34 am

The more developed baby birds still in the egg (unhatched) react to adults alarm calls by vibrating their shells to communicate the danger to their less developed brothers and sisters which, after hatching, translates into predator-avoidance behavior - Now, isn't that simply remarkable?!

That is amazing. It does prove that the unborn is a real chick.

That proves that the un born baby is also a real baby.

Let's not go into political/religious discussions, let's stick to science.
