    I do like useless information! After collecting what I thought was a colossal egg from a nesting box a few weeks ago, I actually tried finding this information out! I weighed and measured the double yolker...a common Jumbo sized egg that weighed just over 72 grams. [​IMG] But I couldn't find the info on the world's largest chicken egg. If that is indeed the size...[​IMG] Poor little hen! [​IMG]
