Anyone out there who really knows about hens?
Abbi Vincent-Lloyd said she lost 30 hens on days when balloons were flying low over her Herefordshire farm.
She claimed the stress of seeing the enormous balloons overhead caused them to run for cover.
It is as they desperately try to find shelter that they bump into each other or their surroundings, exploding the eggs inside them, she said.
I thought that the shells of eggs only formed as it was laid? That they were soft and then hardened on exposure to the air?
Anyone know whether this story is even feasible?
