Breaking out…

“The shell must break before the bird can fly.” Alfred Tennyson

Birds break shells so they can fly.  My question – do birds know they will be able to fly BEFORE they break the shell?  Or does it come as a surprise?

It seems that humanity is better at building shells than breaking them.  Maybe that’s why we can’t fly…
