Unfortunately, the hen died, but the chick is fully formed and completely healthy. The explanation for the “live” birth is a fairly simple one; a veterinarian examined the hen and found that the chick’s egg was fertilized inside the hen, but then stayed inside the hen’s body until it hatched. The egg was incubated for 21 days inside the hen before it hatched. As one may have guessed, the hen died from internal wounds.

I call BS. It just could not happen. An egg needs air so the chick can breath through the shell.
Did not happen, no way no how.

What came first, the chicken or the egg?
We can finally put that one to bed.
Now we can put our efforts into figuring out who's on 1st & what's on 2nd.
