Mahonri's 3rd Annual, BYC Easter Hatch-a-long! - Page 1120

My daughter sent this to me and I thought some of you might find it interesting..............
 
 
 

A Sri Lanka hen has given birth to a chick without an egg, in a new twist on the age-old question of whether the chicken or the egg came first.

Instead of passing out of the hen's body and being incubated outside, the egg was incubated in the hen for 21 days and then hatched inside the hen.

The chick is fully formed and healthy, although the mother has died.

The government veterinary officer in the area said he had never seen anything like it before.

PR Yapa, the chief veterinary officer of Welimada, where it took place, examined the hen's carcass.

He found that the fertilised egg had developed within the hen's reproductive system, but stayed inside the hen's body until it hatched.

A post-mortem conducted on the hen's body concluded that it died of internal wounds.

The BBC's Charles Haviland in Colombo says that the story has made headlines in Sri Lanka, with the Sri Lankan Daily Mirror's concluding: "The chicken came first; not the egg."

Awesome! Too bad it's going to rain the next week. You might be able to swing it though with your covered run.

Gymnastics was one of the best things I ever did with my life. Fortunately and unfortunately I didn't have much of a childhood due to it, but I don't regret it. I was at the gym in the morning before school and at the gym after school until nearly bedtime. Weekends we drove either to meets or to a gym a few hours away to train with a better coach that had an Olympian. No time really for friends, never watched TV (and never picked up the habit later thankfully). I trained very hard and got very hurt sometimes, and lost a lot of cartilage. But I wouldn't have traded it for the world. I had to quit because once I hit high school I just couldn't keep up with the schoolwork anymore. It was either drop out of school and get a tutor and try to go to the Olympics or drop out of gymnastics with the reality that despite the fact that I was the right age, I just wouldn't be good enough. My parents, both schoolteachers, opted for the latter. They also didn't like the fact that I was constantly "dieting" despite being skinny, so I could stay small to do the tricks. So there's always positives and negatives with everything but the experience was exhilarating. If they're happy, that's what's important.

Or we could be blissfully childless big_smile.png

 

I can agree with being blissfully childless!  When I went to pick up the sandbox today, the woman said she was glad to see it go to good use.  I didn't have the heart to tell her it was for my chickens!  I was wondering though, what she was thinking.  Why is this semi-gray haired lady buying a young child's sandbox?  Maybe she thought I was a grandmother. big_smile.png

 

I loved the emu video!
