A chick on a farm in on a farm in Sri Lanka was recently born without an egg.

(Normally eggs are passed out of a hen’s body and incubated outside until the chick hatches. However, in this case, the egg was incubated inside the hen for 21 days before hatching. Unfortunately the poor hen died from the birth, but the chick survived and is said to be healthy and fully formed.

Of course this all means that the age old conundrum of which came first – the chicken or the egg has finally been answered.)
