Best Answer

They can't. As long as the shell is intact, fly eggs (maggots) cannot get into the interior of the egg. If there is a break or small hole in the shell, then it would be possible. In some cuisine, duck eggs are buried and allowed to ferment for a time and then served to people. They are safe to eat as long as the shell is unbroken.

How would live maggots be found after cooking chicken?

If they were found on the chicken immediately after cooking and while it was still warm, the maggots probably came from somewhere else and not the cooked chicken. Fly eggs can hatch within 24 hours of laying. If the chicken was left out to cool, a fly could have laid eggs on it then.

If a chicken laid an egg on a house which way would it roll off?

In my experience if the chicken laid an egg on a house which way would it roll it would have to depend if the chicken is facing you or its backwards. So if the chicken was facing you the egg would roll left. If the chicken was the other way it would probably go right.

If where it was left out is as cold as a refrigerator, it would be OK. Otherwise, you will have to figure that out for yourself.

How was spontaneous generation disproved?

A very interesting experiment was devised, in which there were two jars, both with meat, but one with gauze over the opening. These were left exposed to the air, and the one without gauze in due course had maggots in the meat, and the one with gauze didn't. This confirmed that maggots, rather than being spontaneously generated by rotting meat, were actually put into meat by flies, and the flies can only land on the meat if it is not protected by gauze. Gauze is better for this experiment than a solid covering would be, since we would otherwise not know if the lack of fresh air killed off the spontaneously generated maggots before you could see them.

What is the idea of spontaneous generation about?

Spontaneous Generation was the idea that life spontaneously arose from rotten food. For example, if I left a hamburger outside for a couple days and maggots began to cover it, during the time period that spontaneous generation was accepted, I would have believed that the maggots came from nothing.
