Secret key of genetics explain why birds don’t have teeth

Birds are magnificent creatures to research many scientific studies on their genetics.In first sight birds are higly different as they don’t have teet and this secret genetic of birds is holding the mysterious differences like they don’t have teeth.In this study their digestive systems effects to not need any teeth to break down the food.
