Japanese Students Hatch Baby Chick Without An Egg

June 6, 2016


This is a video of a group of Japanese students hatching a baby chicken with no shell, just a glass and some Syran wrap. Is that really hatching then? I feel like the egg is an important part of hatching. This is more like, growing a chicken in a cup. You know I got into an argument the other day with a girl who still believes that egg yolks are baby chickens. It was my little sister, I guess I never got around to telling her I was just kidding after I convinced her yolks were baby chickens when she was younger. Man...all the lies I told her that she probably still believes. They say it takes a village to raise a child, but it only takes one older brother to fill one's head with lies and half-truths and distort their entire worldview. I wonder if she still believes windmills make the wind.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Allyson S, who wants to see the same thing done but with a penguin.

    Wow... it is incredible... The Japanese are experts in weird things. I have nothing more to say.

    Something about this video feels like a hoax to me. Maybe just all Japanese TV even important science channels have crazy graphics, wacky music, a very non-professional sounding announcer with sound effects and anime-hentai looking giggling school girls doing experiments.

    I'm old-fashioned. If it's real then Richard Attenborough is talking, there is a feeling of important in the music, no sound effects, only names and respectable university degrees under faces briefly for on-screen text - not this crap.

    Judges all school marmey

    SYRAN WRAP? Don't you mean SARAN wrap? Or is the brand name different in the US?

    These aren't store-bought eggs are they? At least in US stores the eggs are unfertilized.

  • asdfadfs

    its easier to collect periods than to take the eggs and have them fertilized, unless you're buying fancy traditional freerange chicken coop thing or something

    probably unfertilized in stores, fertilized special order for the science class

  • DarkRaven5412

    I read that part of the experiment involves fertilizing the egg.

    Was anyone else expecting the chicken to finish its incubation with the camera spinning around it with lasers shooting in every direction, ending with the chick posing and showing a piece sign?

    Wherever you get your LSD, I'm jealous.

  • Sister Simplice

    As opposed to "adult chick."

    What came first, the chicken or the egg? Trick question, all along it was plastic wrap.

  • Matthew Anderson

    Egg came first. #"science"
