Quote:
A hen in Ottawa's eastern outskirts has squeezed out an egg as heavy as a baseball.

The egg, which has a mass of 143 grams — almost three times the size of a standard medium egg and within the 141-148 g range for a Major League Baseball ball — was laid Friday by a red shaver hen on Laurie McCannell's farm in Vars, Ont., a village that is now part of Ottawa's east end.

As if that's not bad enough...

However, it seems the record set in 1896 still stands.

Guinness World Records reports that in that year, a black minorca at Mr. Stafford's Damsteads Farm in Mellor in Lancashire, U.K., laid a five-yolk 340-gram egg.


:shock: I hope she had the epidural!
