Have you ever heard any chicken urban legends or stories about chickens you just can't believe? I've heard a few from old timers who have raised chickens.

1. You can hatch a chicken egg if you keep it in your arm pit for three weeks.

2. Anything you place up a chickens vent they will form an eggshell around. (engagement ring was an example I heard)

3. If you feed your chickens alot of alfalfa they will lay eggs with green yolks.

If you've heard any please share.

You can in fact hatch an egg using only body heat.

I don't know about an armpit, but I do know two 'body bators', one male and one female who successfully hatched chicks, one in her bra, the other in his... um... shorts.
He did build a holster though, didn't just stick em down there.
