The farmer claims the shape makes the production of egg sammies a breeze, and I'd argue it could revolutionize packing and transport for these infamously fragile products -- can researchers narrow down the genes involved and get going with a generation of new and improved chickens?

Of course, ITV could be pulling our legs, but just in case, I'm going to call a San Francisco carpenter and talk about expanding the chicken coop.
