The 'Eggless' Chick

Now, I don't know if chickens are getting jealous of mammals that give birth to live young and have now decided that they too want to give birth which is what a particular hen in Sri Lanka 'tried' and achieved at the cost of her life.

According to the BBC,  the egg got fertilised and remained in the hen's body incubating for 21 days when it hatched. The chief veterinary officer of Welimada, PR Yapa who  did a post-mortem on the hen said it died of internal injuries which is surely a lesson to other hens who may want to try this 'suicide mission' of birthing life chicks.

This post is about me being sarcastic, for real journalistic reportage read the BBC's report on this story here.
