Two years ago, a curious Malaysian woman bought balut eggs from a restaurant in Puchong and decided to hatch them at home
According to Bored Panda, 39-year-old Erica Lim made her own incubator out of Styrofoam and heated lamps, then placed the eggs inside.
Balut eggs are developing bird embryos (usually ducks) that are often boiled and sold as a controversial delicacy in Philippines.
After two weeks of caring for the eggs, Erica revealed that some of them were premature and could not survive... until one little duckling hatched!
Erica instantly fell in love with her new friend, who she named Daisy but also, affectionately calls Bibit

Erica described Daisy as being "charming and attentive" and the two have since become the best of friends
