Hatching Duck

Notice the cracked egg at the top right corner.

All four of us got to watch the experience together, it was the first time any of us had seen such a sight! It was quite remarkable. We were fascinated by how the duckling had cut a ring around the bottom of the egg and then he just popped the end off when he was ready to come out. And the veins inside the egg were pretty cool, they're so tiny and intricate. And then the duckling stumbled and bumbled around trying to figure out how those little legs work, so awkward and so cute at the same time. Oh, we were all enthralled by this awesome creation designed by an awesome God!
At just over 12 hours old the baby (on the right) is starting to look a little more like his (or her) siblings. He's still got a little more fluffing out to do, but he seems to be doing great!
