Yes well early embryonic stage tends to resemble traits of the ancestors... so early embryonic chicken looking like its ancestor. Stefan, what do you want in the way of specifics? A chicken is a chicken!

Hey hey! Alright old son!
It's the wrong colour?

We have already covered that, Hulk.

Next ---

I shall leave the three of you to ponder this. It is 11:00 PM here and i have two conference calls to prepare for tomorrow. Good night!  Good night!

Please, no applause.

It looks like it is beating or moving very fast.

The story was that researchers have studied the development of crocodilian-like teeth in chicken embryos, which shows that chickens still retain the genes for making teeth but normally silence them.

Huh? Sicko as in Awesome! ?

Chicken embryos don't normally have teeth. You said that's what's special about this photo.

A deranged, psychotic, or morbidly obsessed person.

I just can't leave before asking - what ever happened to that catchy statement "Ontology recapitulates phylogeny?"

Oh yes - it is moving fast. How astute.

That statement is not strictly true, however organisms do retain and express certain features of their evolutionary history during their development.

The Geezer reserves the right to do as he darned well pleases, sicko, i.e., wicked cool one. Stefan was right. Keep up with the language. I would like to recommend the urban dictionary.

As for ontology, I do remember reading an article on Science Daily several years ago that chicken embryos having teeth had been photographed. I guess I missed the import of the news. I am utterly dismayed at this scientific faux pas. I regret any confusion in smaller minds (ergo,Hulk) that may have occurred. _Stefan_ you, young Skywalker, were correct. I have learned that adults are not totally infallible. My deepest apologies, sir.

(That is the way to grovel, C4. When I am right, this is how you should react to my imperiousness.)

Dang - I have had 8 hours of sleep since I last posted. Is it almost 1 AM or 11 AM tomorrow where you are, _Stefan_? It is nearly 10 AM here.

Melbourne - looked at your profile - ergo, almost 1 AM

No

That is a very specific answer.
