Chicken In Mexico Lays Green Eggs

A chicken in a small Mexican town is making a name for herself by laying green eggs. Rabanita started laying the green-colored eggs last December, said her owner, Elvira Romero.

Romero said she has found no explanation for the strange color of Rabanita's egg and that the chicken does not get a special diet, and eats what her other chickens do: corn, tortillas and chicken feed.

Scientists said they believed the color of the eggs' shells does not affect the color or flavor of the yolk inside.

They said blue or green shell colors are frequently found in the Araucana chicken strain.
