Jessica the hens' mammoth egg has set a record for Somerset!
My sources at Molly Media report very eggciting news from Somerset here in good old Blighty. For Jessica the free-range hen it must have been an eggs-crutiating time when she laid an egg three times bigger than normal. The egg weighed a hefty 6ozs, which is a staggering a quarter of a pound heavier than the average 2oz egg. The egg was laid on the opening day of the Olympics and it sure was a golden cracker! Bet that brought tears to her eyes as it was probably eggstreamly painful! Did no vet eggzamine her after she gave birth to this eggstraordinary egg? We bet that Jessica was egghausted. Steve Egginton (his real name) told our hard boiled reporters that he used the egg to make scrambled egg on toast for breakfast. 'It was very tasty and a rather substantial meal for us both,' he told our eggstatic correspondent. Despite the monster weight of the egg it is not quite heavy enough to break the Guinness World Record. The largest hen egg, currently stands at a staggering 1lb. Must have given the poor chicken hen-aroids laying that! OUCH! Bet it made a good omelette though. Don’t egg me on, I’m sure I could hatch a few more but for now that’s all yolks!
