Most chickens lay eggs that are similiar in size and shape over their life time. Young hens tend to lay smaller eggs and older hens tend to lay larger eggs. I just ran across an article online about a jumbo chicken egg. Check it out below. It’s amazing! CLICK HERE to go to the page and watch the video.

SAN FRANCISCO, Colombia — A farmer hopes his hen’s enormous egg will make it into the record books.
The farmer’s daughter got a real surprise recently when she found the egg weighing 8.6 ounces, or about four times the normal weight of an egg.
The farmer, Hernando Niño, from the Cundinamarca region, says he plans to contact Guinness World Records as he’s never seen in his 20 years of farming anything like what his 5-year-old hen, named Franciscana, laid.
“The egg will stay in a glass case for people to see and so it is preserved,” Niño said.
