    This is the biggest chicken egg I have ever seen and that my hens have ever laid. Its bigger then some of my goose eggs! And its is 100% a hen egg which is crazy. My egg scale is reading 198-200 grams as its weight. Could this be a record egg and how do I get it in the books if it is?

    "In 2010, when Matilda the chicken, of Ipswich, England, laid an egg 3 1/2 inches high and 8.3 inches around, a Guinness World Records spokesman told the U.K. news website Metro: "The largest hen egg was a five-yolked egg measuring [12.2 inches] around the long axis, [9 inches] around the short and weighing nearly [12 ounces]. It was laid by a Black Minorca at Mr. Stafford’s Damsteads Farm, Mellor, Lancs [England] in 1896."

    Your 200 gram egg weighs about 7 ounces...which is definitely huge...but not big enough to break the world record :(
