Chinese poultry farmer Wang Yu, has found the most incredible egg among the eggs laid by his flock of chickens.
The strange egg with a 5cm appendage was laid by one of his highly prized hens which he had been anticipating for a while.
Yu said, “The other chickens had all laid an egg and I was waiting for this one to do the same. “Normally she is the first to deliver so I was getting a bit concerned and kept going to check on her every half hour or so.
“When she finally did lay I was relieved because I thought something might be wrong with her.
“When I went into the coop and found this weird tail I assumed someone was playing a joke on me.
“I’ve been farming chickens all my life and have never come across anything like this.”
When Yu showed the strange egg to one of his farmer friends they theorised the mutation might be a result of stress, Metro UK reports.
“My friend is a bit of an expert on chickens and he said the hen had most likely been shocked or surprised by something during the laying process.”
Funny enough, Yu said he would rather keep the egg as a souvenir instead of eating or selling it since it is a rarity.
He said, “This is a once in a lifetime experience for me and I want to keep it for my grandchildren and great grandchildren to see.”
Meanwhile, this is one among many strange mutation stories.
Recently, a pig was born with a penis on the head, although it finally died after the owner abandoned it.
