A French artist has hatched 10 eggs, spending three weeks sitting in a 98F glass case.

"Abraham Poincheval has been on public display inside a glass case in the Palais de Tokyo modern art museum since March 29, and can be seen checking on the eggs every few minutes via the museum's live YouTube feed," The Telegraph reported.

Poincheval, who is the father of two, was successful to hatch the first egg earlier this week.

"It's been really tough for him. He has slept sitting on the eggs. It's been a lot harder than being shut inside the rock," dailmail.co.uk said quoting a spokeswoman for the museum.

Poincheval had stayed inside the glass that has temperature of 37 degree Celsius that is must for the eggs to hatch.

He had also spent a fortnight inside a bear carcass eating worms and insects, and navigated the Rhone river inside a giant corked bottle.

    I was harassed recently by someone whom I considered a guardian, called him brother and always felt safe being with him. I was drunk that day, and tense and unconscious. He first hugged me. I thought it was a friendly hug but slowly he started crossing his limits. I shouted and stopped him. He wasn’t drunk. He tried to use me. He abused me. He knew everything about me including my struggles with my health.
