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. This isn't some radical X-Men style evolution of chickens, however; as the BBC notes, the process was fatal for poor mamma hen, as what had happened was that a fully fertilised egg had incubated within her body for 21 days before hatching inside of her. 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]
