I wish all those people were hanging at my house over this past weekend to witness yet another display of what an Amazing Creator we serve. (well maybe not the whole weekend)
3 weeks ago, straight from our nesting boxes to our incubator......life began as soon as these eggs were surrounded with warm air. Within 25 hours the heart begins to form, by the 42nd hour.....it begins to beat. By the sixth day.....all organs and muscles......everything is pretty much formed including the little egg tooth on it's beak that it will use to enter the world. Feathers are forming by Day 8.
They were automatically turned for 18 days, then placed in a still incubator to prepare for this world. For those next three days....these little creations are turning themselves around to the only air cell pocket and absorbing the nutrients of their yolk sac that will sustain them for the exhausting journey ahead. They actually circle inside the egg, pecking tiny perforation holes to enable them to break out when the time is right. How crazy is that?!?
Within hours.....feathers fluff out, legs strengthen and they are ready to be taken out.
And check this out: These little chicks already have all their eggs formed within; that will continue on this beautiful circle of life.
a self containing capsule complete with
membranes to protect,
capillaries for blood flow,
tiny sacs with just enough air
but most importantly,
equipped with instructions from Above.
Thank you for allowing me to share in my awe of The One who creates it all.......which is exactly the reason I named my blog why I did
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
