A bird. They are hatched and raised in trees (nests), don’t have teeth in the traditional meaning of teeth and they lay eggs, which look nothing like a bird.

A butterfly / caterpillar could also work.

Very true, mistletoe fits the same description. I starts as a seed and grows to be a plant

True, it is quite common that a riddle may have alternate answers. I will add mistletoe to the riddle as a alternate answer!
