Which came first? Hen gives birth to live chick without an egg

Mammals give birth to live young, birds and lizards lay eggs… that’s the way it’s always been since whenever. But in Sri Lanka, a mother hen gave live birth to a baby chick after incubating it inside her body for 21 days. Freaky.

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.
