This video of ‘rotten eggs hatching due to heat’ is not from Saudi Arabia

A video has been doing rounds on WhatsApp and other social media claiming the ‘unsold old eggs’ that were thrown in the dump, hatched, due to the scorching heat.

The video claims to be of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The caption reads-  ‘In Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, they had dumped huge lot of expired or unsold old eggs in an open dust bin. Due to the heat around, the eggs got hatched and thousands of hatched tiny chicken started crawling all over. Who can stop God’s will, to deny life in his creation. The world may dump you in a rubbish bin but it’s not over until God says it’s over!
