    I was on Yahoo just now and saw this "News story" video from the AP. Apparently they are all mystified why this chicken lays green eggs. Does this reporter not know about Americaunas and EEs????

    This is hilarious. I'd provide a link if I can but it won't give me a seperate link. I found it on the Yahoo.com main page.

    I saw that lastnight on our channel 9 News!!! It was the end of the cast teaser story. And the newswoman says at the end "Only in Mexico". They were all dumbfounded about these eggs.

    But really I do understand, I had know idea, nor did any of my family, the multitudes of breeds there really are. They should have done a little more research though being on the news and all. [​IMG]

    Our news media does not research ANYTHING before they broadcast it. That is why I do not watch the news, EVER! I do listen to NPR daily and I have found them to be very reliable. Most news stations are SO pathetic!

    I saw the same thing???I wondered what was different about these eggs from my green eggs. That just proves you can not trust the media....They do not know what they are talking about most of the time...
