Watermelon hens, also known as chickens, are big, juicy, green-skinned poultry full of delicious, sweet pink flesh. They are descendants of junglemelon fowl, native to the Kataya Rainforest, which are smaller, less sweet and juicy, and are more of a pale yellow-green than the rich vivid green of modern chickens. Watermelon hens only exist in captivity, and don't survive long in the wild. They lay black eggs which hatch into baby chicks. Baby melons have fuzzy green fur, which shrinks away and disappears as they grow. The eggs have very thick woody shells. They can be pierced with a skewer and drained. They contain a thick green yolk which can be fried in a pan to make pancakes which have a grassy flavour.
