    The link below is a short video of a a Chinese woman whose hen layed an egg of 4.5ozs and 4 inches in diameter. It's in Italian but worth the view. She says that she just feeds her hens rice and wheat and had never seen such an egg before. The 'expert' at the end of the video says that it is probably the result of two eggs joining together to form one egg. It certainly is a big one!
