    Blessed chick: Hen that lays green eggs
    Associated Press
    Wednesday, January,30 2008 (Mexico city):

    Ordinary-looking hen with brown feathers has become a celebrity in Cuautitlan, a small village north of Mexico City, because every day she lays an egg with a green shell.

    ...


    So far, there is no explanation for the colour of the eggs.

    Romero says that Rabanita does not have a special diet different from the rest of the chickens, just the usual corn, tortillas and chicken feed.

    Hm. Blue and green egg laying chicken are not that uncommon in Mexico--it must REALLY have been a slow news day!!!

    Yeah I posted on that too. I guess the reporter never heard of Ameracaunas! You'd think she'd do some research though...
