The Internet is full of bizarre things. Adding to that and piquing the interest of scientists is a man who found that his chickens lay eggs that have green yolks and now he is the talk of his town.
When A K Shihabudheen, a native of Othukkungal in Malappuram, posted photos and videos of eggs with green yolk on social media, they went viral.
People from across the country and from other countries too started contacting Shihabudheen to know more about the phenomenon. Even Scientists from the Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (KVASU) launched a study on the special hens and the eggs- to understand ‘Why it is green?’
Apparently, nine months ago, Shihabudheen found an egg laid by one of his hens which had a green yolk. Back then neither he nor his family consumed it as they did not know whether it would be the same.
He hatched some eggs laid by the hen. To his surprise, the new hens also started laying eggs that have green yolk!
