You know how chickens lay eggs, which (if fertilised) hatch into chicks? Not so in Sri Lanka, where a chicken reportedly gave birth to a chick… without that whole messy egg.

Mamma hen died of internal wounds, according to a post mortem, although what I can't resist calling 'Macduff' the chick is apparently doing OK. [BBC via Geekosystem]
