Did you know God designed baby birds to have the original disposable diapers?
Baby song birds are always hungry, and their mother is continually feeding them. But what goes in one end must come out the other! The nest could easily become a big mess. Imagine the bird nests filling up with droppings, leaving less and less space for the baby birds. This would not only be unhealthy, but enable predators to easily detect their location.
How did God solve this problem? By providing disposable diapers. Each chick’s fecal matter has a mucous membrane that surrounds it. The chick generally defecates within seconds of being fed. The parent then removes this fecal sac and deposits it away from the nest as it flies off to find additional food for the chicks. Shortly before the chicks fledge (fly away from the nest), they stop producing fecal sacs.
When you see tiny baby birds in their nests, think of how God has provided for their cleanliness and safety using the world’s first biodegradable, disposable diapers!
