Close up of an Egg Tooth

I posted this on IG and was shocked how many people have never seen an egg tooth. If you haven’t, here you go!

It falls off right after they hatch. Since I cut this clutch, none of them lost their egg tooth. When they first come out you can feel it, it sticks out at a forward angle kinda.

That’s cool! I thought the egg tooth was more like a beak over the nose, not under it.
