    Here's
    the video from Yahoo News. The chicken owner claims the egg is over 4 oz and about 7 inches around. Anyone got this beat?!


    Edited to add: "The Guinness Book of Records lists the world's largest [chicken] egg (with a diameter of 9 inches/22.5 cm) as having five yolks and the heaviest egg (1 pound/0.45 kg) as having a double yolk and a double shell. "

    Guess the Yahoo guy is just gonna have to eat his "jumbo" egg.
