Chicken without an egg born in Sri Lanka

04-21-2012 11:38 BJT
The chicken certainly came before the egg on a farm in Sri Lanka recently when a chick was born without an egg.
Normally eggs are passed out of a hen's body and incubated outside. However, in this case, the egg was incubated inside the hen for 21 days before hatching.
The chick survived and is said to be healthy and fully formed, however, the mother has died of internal wounds.
The farmer alerted local veterinary authorities of the phenomenon and a post-mortem was conducted.
The story has hit headlines across Sri Lanka and proved popular on Twitter with many joking that it solves the age old conundrum of which came first - the chicken or the egg.
