Chicken lays giant egg: A hen in a village in China's Guizhou Province has reportedly lain a nearly half-pound egg that had another egg inside it. How often does this happen?
A hen in a small village in China's Guizhou Province has apparently lain a remarkable egg.
“I’m more than 80 now, but I’ve never seen eggs like this before,” Ms. Yang, the hen's owner, told NTD.
This is not the first time this particular hen has reportedly lain a giant egg. Yang says she's dropped five oversized ova in the past three weeks, and she speculated that the eggs have something to do with the hen's diet of rice, which the hen prefers to corn.
Is this the biggest egg ever measured? Oddly enough, the Guinness Book of World Records created their Worlds Largest Chicken Egg category only recently, in 2011. That was in response to a hen in Yell County, Ark., laying an egg that, according to CNN, weighed 5.4 ounces and measured 3 1/2 inches long.
