    (Dec. 9) -- Poached or over easy? A woman and her husband were left with their brains scrambled after discovering a huge 4-inch-long egg laid by one of their chickens.

    Patricia Mae of Seven Sisters, South Wales, in the U.K., thought her husband, James, was pulling her leg when he told her about the large egg last month, reports the website This Is South Wales.

    "I just couldn't believe what I was seeing," a shellshocked Patricia said. "We've been keeping chickens for years, but we've never seen an egg this size before.
