Like Dr. Seuss' 'Green Eggs and Ham' come to life, the chickens of a farmer in Malappuram, India, lay eggs with dark green yolks. "It was nine months ago that we first got such an egg with a green yolk from a hen in our small poultry farm,” Ak Shihabudheen explained to The News Minute. After his photos went viral, the Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University got involved, investigating what might be behind the phenomenon.
The scientists have postulated that the feed for the hens may have caused the unusual coloration, yet Shihabudheen says what he feeds the chickens is not out of the ordinary. He does confirm that the unique eggs taste just like regular ones and plans to market them pending the findings of the University.
