How do baby birds get oxygen inside their eggs?

They have a large oxygen supply from the start
Oxygen is created during protein reduction
Oxygen comes in through pores in the shell
They don't need oxygen at all
Directly under the shell, there is a small pocket of air. The microscopic pores on the egg surface allow the CO2 to escape and fresh air to get in, so a developing bird can breathe.
