Good morning, Netizens...
The AP picture of the day which comes to us from Canada, reminds me of raising chickens quite a bit, although I admit I never saw any chicken pop an egg quite THAT big before.
An egg weighing in at 143 grams is seen amongst regular sized eggs at the home of Mike McCannell in Vars, Ontario, Canada on Monday. McCannell found the egg while collecting on Friday afternoon. He says it was laid by a chicken that is around 4-years-old.
Like most stories and pictures, there are some things that went unsaid about the chicken who laid the giant egg:
You can spot the chicken clear across the barnyard. She is the hen who is walking bow-legged, is perhaps a bit dizzy and is still looking for a trophy for having created a single egg suitable for making a giant omelette.
