The Chicken Says: Bach Bach Bach!
A New Zealand vineyard has discovered that a constant diet of classical music makes its hens lay larger eggs.
Peter Yealands, owner of the Yealands Wine Estate, said that he initially began playing Mozart, Bach and Strauss to his wine-producing vines to make them hardier and less prone to disease.
But playing the music in a hen house led to eggs weighing 62 grams each, while eggs laid in the houses without the music weighed 52 grams each. “I really don’t know why,” Yealands admitted.
