It has been found that the bird that disappeared before about 50-55 thousands without until today to have identified the cause.
The eggs
A team of researchers led by scientists at the University of Colorado in the U.S. they analyzed fossils of eggs of Genyornis and in combination with other findings have resulted in an interesting conclusion.
