Watch: Georgian Landfill Overrun by Hundreds of Chicks After “Spoiled” Eggs Hatch

Georgian Landfill Overrun by Hundreds of Chicks After “Spoiled” Eggs Hatch

A landfill near the small city of Marneuli, in Georgia, recently turned into a chick hatchery, after the scorching heat caused hundreds of spoiled eggs disposed of by a local poultry farm to hatch.


 

“They [the poultry farm] believed the eggs were spoiled,” the mayor told reporters. “They were thrown away at the dump. But there are rocks – and the sun heated the eggs. The conditions were the same as if hens had hatched them.”

So basically, the farm disposed of some spoiled eggs and the heat caused them to hatch. That’s not something you see every day, although similar things have happened. But what became of all those hundreds of chicks in the end?

“So many were hatched. Most chicks have been saved for now – although they may be eaten soon,” mayor Abazov said. “Many local people took the chicks home.”
