Eggs

Eggs | East Wenatchee, WA | March 2019

The chicken came first, in case you’re wondering. Their reptilian ancestors — yep, our feathered friends were once scaly lizards — most likely reproduced through viviparity, or giving live birth to their young. That biological trend advanced to ovoviviparity (internal eggs) and, much later, into the squat-and-deposit method we know today. I like to think egg evolution ran parallel to the development of hashbrown potatoes, but scientists are still digesting those findings. In any case, Happy Easter!
