Pancake Chicken

A chicken that lays eggs filled with pancake batter
  [vote for,

The first step is to acquire a hen containing a partially formed egg. Timing is essential; you must do this before the shell begins to form, as the yolk and albumin (egg white) are approaching the lower part of the oviduct.

Use a pair of large syringes to suck out the yolk and albumin, and replace them with an equal volume of pancake batter. Several hours later the chicken will lay a normal-looking egg, but when you crack it open over a hot frying pan you’ll get a pancake instead of a fried egg.

       Oh, skip all that. We all know this needs genetic engineering to be truely elegant. In fact, this is one idea I'd prefer to contain a little GM magic.

       [UB]s idea would fit nicely in a Monty Phyton movie where the hero rides a steam roller.   

       Since [World] is alreay busy with genetic engineering one could modify the chicken so it grinds up some of the grain it feeds on, also eats some butter cups for fat and makes the batter all on its own.

       [AO] - your chicken-tampering fantasy is alarming, disturbing and immoral. Why don't you make a non-dairy pancake batter mix and sell it in an egg-shaped container to the vegan/dairy-intolerant market? And leave the poor chickens in peace!

       After reading humanbean’s annotation, I realize that the chicken tampering is entirely unnecessary, but I couldn’t think of any other way to get pancake batter into an eggshell. On the other hand, this process might serve as a more economical way to make paintballs (with quails instead of chickens).

       Actually, if hb is right, and that method would work, I would recommend a whole line of kitchen products in eggs.

       I think the process of paintball manufacture is cheap and efficient (at least currently) enough not to be tampered with ... machines used to encapsulate pills for the pharmaceutical industry make paintballs. Its just on a larger scale ... so enjoy your Diablo, or RPS paintballs with your Tylenol

       wtf? pancake batter? you could have chosen anything to replace the contents of an eggs and you came up with pancake batter? i think the truly marketable replacement is vodka or beer. or at least maple syrup, so that you could crack one open over your PANCAKES.
