Lucas and Lars Lund, brothers from Hällnäs, Sweden, bought some eggs from a grocery store took them home and successfully hatched four live chicks.

The Västerbottens-Kuriren newspaper reported that the brothers actually were able to get real chicks from eggs that were just at their local Coop supermarket.

“It’s really exciting for us. It all started as a hobby, and when I read online that organic eggs could yield chicks, I knew I had to buy an incubator,” Lucas Lund told The Local.

“I bought the freshest eggs in the store, then I came straight home and put them in the incubator.”

After a little bit of time four of the eggs started to crack.

Lund claims of the 24 eggs in the cart 10 were fertilized.   They expect a few more to hatch soon.
