    Seeing this made me feel things and I wanted to share it with you. Thank you to everyone who supports at . You make it possible for me to publish content I genuinely love instead of trying to please the algorithm. Thank you!

      I never saw this video despite watching all your other vids. I think youtube might be classifying it as pro life instead of educational.

    Life is incredible. We all look the same as tiny embryos, whether we were hatched from an egg outside the body or nurtured inside a mammalian mother. So amazing.

    After observing my hens, I have to believe that their brains didn’t get any bigger. All joking aside, it is amazing to see how God designed them to develop.

    That's actually amazing! On the other hand I feel a bit off because I had eggs for breakfast and now I'm thinking which stage if any were the eggs at that I personally ate. My eggs are from a farm and completely organic and natural because pre-covid I would take my kids and actually go to pick eggs. This is my new nightmare ====> 🐣

    What I find amazing is that the yolk acts like a placenta. The egge shell is actually gas permeable and allows waste gasses to pass out through the yolk and good gasses to pass to the embryo. Nature is amazing.

    The anatomy scan while pregnant was easily one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. We got to go over every single bit of our baby: bones, organs, all 4 chambers of the heart, brain, etc etc etc. It was a long scan but it was so cool. I always call pregnancy the coolest experiment I've ever conducted.

    Destin, do you know if these embryos succeed in producing new chicks? I imagine they have to switch the displays every day so I hope they're going straight into an incubator to continue growing and not just discarded.

    Too bad you weren't able to work with the Exploratorium to get a behind the scenes look at how the exhibit is maintained and "refreshed" everyday

    I can’t get over how complicated and amazing life is. There’s more complexity in a 5 day old chicken than anything humans have ever created. Even the grass we walk on is insanely complex at a cellular level. In conclusion: nature is awesome.

    Really cool video, but what happens to the chickens after day 7? Are these animals taken through to live a full life? I would be interested to know.

  • z0ck3r

    Can we just appreciate how destin went about his day and saw something he thought would be some random knowledge worth sharing

  • AJ

    I think I ate day 2 before...

  • frosecold

    Reality and life are so complex and beautiful, and to think we people have perspectives about it so radically different, when I see this video I see biology, embryology, science, research, wonder... On the other hand when a religious person sees this they probably think about how wise god is in his design... And that's sad

    So the egg labeled 'day 1' will be moved the next day and they will add another egg and label it 'day 1'?

    I've noticed sometimes seeing a red spot within the yolk of store bought eggs. Assuming these are infertile, what is the red spot in the yolk?

    I think it’s particularly worth sharing the verse he put at the end of this video because it’s both beautifully written and appropriate for the subject matter: For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

      I know. It’s so sad that something comes from little more than two people’s DNA and a portion of a mother’s food intake organizes into a human being only to be scraped out before it even got to experience anything.
