Giant egg laid in Great Wishford

Salisbury Journal: Giant egg laid in Great Wishford Giant egg laid in Great Wishford

A HEN in Great Wishford delivered a hefty surprise to its owner when it produced a giant egg.

The un-egg-spected monster is slightly under four inches long, just under nine inches in circumference and weighs about 175g – making it about four times the size of a regular chicken egg.

It was laid by one of Sandra Jones’ one-year-old Plymouth Rock hens at her home in Great Wishford.

Unfortunately the enormous egg doesn’t beat the world record - a whopping five-yolked egg measuring 12.2 inches around the long axis and weighing almost 340g, which was laid in 1896.

Good to see that the novelty egg stories keep coming. We all like a good yolk.
