China Hen Lays Giant Egg

There are fairy tales of hens laying golden eggs. But few if any about a hen laying three eggs. Three eggs in one that is.

 

In a little village in China’s Guizhou province, a super hen has laid five eggs of monstrous proportions. And no, these were not goose eggs found in her nest.

 

Ms. Yang said she thought her hen was dying when she laid her first jumbo egg that weighed almost half a pound.

"The first huge egg appeared about three weeks ago. And there are four to five (oversized eggs) now."

 

She said the hen’s eggs had double yolks before, but triplets? 

 

[Ms. Yang, Bije Villager]

"I'm more than 80 now, but I have never seen eggs like this before.”

 

One speculation is the fowl’s unique diet. Ms. Yang says the fowl doesn’t like to eat corn so she feeds it rice.

 

But whatever the reason, Ms. Yang’s hen will go down in the chicken hall of fame for her “eggstraordinary” creations.
