    I agree, it's awesome! Beats the heck out of candling as far as learning is concerned, but it still just seems so unnatural to me.

    I am no expert and I don't mean to be cynical but I have so many questions about this video.

    First and foremost, how does it peck it's way out? They never showed this in the video I watched.
    2. What about the air pocket?
    3. Bacteria is so important...I guess they use sterile plastic?
    4. What about humidity?

    Having said all that, if this is real...it's very cool!

    Reproducing an air pocket, a sterile environment, and humidity would be easy in a lab. How to reproduce the chick pecking its way out is a good question!
