Hens At This Kerala Farm Are Laying Eggs With Green Yolks

A group of hens at a farm in Malappuram are laying eggs with green yolks, leaving everyone including scientists perplexed. AK Shihabudheen, the farm’s owner, posted a few pictures and videos of the green yolk eggs on Facebook. Since then, the photos have created an uproar on the Internet.

According to TNIE, people from different parts of India and even abroad began contacting Shihabudheen to know more about the phenomenon. And now, scientists from the Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (KVASU) have launched a study on these miracle eggs and hens.

Story Behind The Green Yolk Eggs In Kerala’s Farm

So the story goes as follows. Reportedly, around 9 months ago, Shihabudheen found that an egg laid by one of his hens had a green yolk. Wondering if it would be safe to consume or not, he and his family decided not to eat it. Instead, they hatched some of the eggs laid by the hen. And to their surprise, the new hens also started laying eggs with green yolks!

“When we found that we could hatch chickens from these eggs, we began consuming the green eggs. The news of this egg phenomenon spread after I shared some pictures on social media a couple of weeks ago,” he told TNIE.
