** Zhang Yinde, an employee of the Forestry Bureau of Suiling County, owns an ordinary hen which laid a 6.3 centimeters wide and 9.2 cm long egg, and weighed 201 grams, three times heavier than an ordinary egg-setting the world record for the Largest Chicken Egg.
** The Largest Chicken Egg it’s been kept in the refrigerator of the owner.
Zhang told Xinhua that the Largest Chicken Egg looks like any other, except that its shell is a bit rough.
“The heroine hen is a super mother. She laid three other big eggs previously and once laid four eggs within one day,” Zhang said.
Zhang got the hen as a “bonus” when he bought 10 other chickens from a breeder.
The other chickens have since ended up on Zhang’s dinner table.
** The hen has an unusual source of food. “She loves to walk around my dog’s kennel. I guess she’s been stealing the dog’s food,” Zhang said.
** The previous world record for the Largest Chicken Egg was set by a Cuban hen named “Titi”.
