Eggs are breathing.

Tategamori Ark Farm's ``old eggs'' are fertilized eggs.
Fertile eggs are eggs that, when warmed, turn into chicks.
The chicks will hatch after being heated for three weeks at approximately 38 degrees Celsius, which is close to the mother hen's body temperature.
When I talked about this at Tamago Hiroi, which is open on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays,
Some people say ``warm it by soaking it in hot water.''
In fact, if you do that, the chicks will not only hatch, but the whites will become watery and spoil easily.
This is because the surface of the eggshell has many very small holes.
The number is said to be between 7,000 and 17,000.
These small holes are called ``stomata,'' and they function to take in the oxygen necessary for the chick to grow, and to expel carbon dioxide gas (carbon dioxide) generated inside.
``Breathe in oxygen and give out carbon dioxide'' is exactly ``breathing”.
It's strange to think that a single egg, a small egg, contains the source of life.
By the way, in order to hatch chicks, in addition to proper temperature, you also need proper humidity and egg turning.
In "Egg Collecting," we talk about things like chicks, chickens, eggs, and unimportant stories about the staff (lol) as we pack the eggs we've collected.
If you are interested, please come! Go to “Tamago Hiroi”! !
