Chinese hen gives world's heaviest egg
The egg has outweighed the heaviest egg reported in the Guinness Book of Records ? 148 grams, produced in Ukraine in February 2004.
A super egg, 8.5 centimetres long, 6.1 centimetres wide and weighing 206 grams has been laid by a hen in Jiaozuo in central China, Xinhua reported.
The egg has outweighed the heaviest egg reported in the Guinness Book of Records — 148 grams, produced in Ukraine in February 2004.
But its owner Chen Xiaobai did not say whether she would apply for a place in the record book.
Chen, a woman farmer specialised in chicken raising, has raised a brood of round, sturdy hens, one of which was the eight-month old hen that laid the record-breaking egg on March 18.
