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!

If there’s a genetic tendency to be incompetent or fumble at the crucial moment, then there would be, by definition, natural selection in favor of contraceptive ineptitude"

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.

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.)
