July 3, 2009 | by RMJ

An ordinary hen laid an extraordinary egg in China this week, and her owner says that it’s one for the record books.

According to owner Zhang Yinde, the egg is, at 201 grams, 25 grams heavier than the previous record holder. The egg is 6.3 centimeters wide and 9.2 centimeters long. Its shell is slightly misshapen and rougher than a typical egg one third its size.

“The heroine hen is a super mother. She laid three other big eggs previously and once laid four eggs within one day,” Zhang, an employee of the Forestry Bureau of Suiling County, Suihua City of Heilongjiang, said. “She loves to walk around my dog’s kennel. I guess she’s been stealing the dog’s food.”

Zhang got the chicken as a bonus with ten others. He is keeping the egg in his refrigerator until it is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records.
