Breaking Record: German Chicken Lays World's Biggest Egg

German farmers Ingrid and Gunther Main were recently surprised to find out that their chicken laid an egg weighing over two times more than average, the Local reported.

The couple from Lower Saxony raises chickens as "a hobby" and found an egg weighing 184g two weeks ago.

An ordinary chicken egg weighs on average 50g, meaning the farmers' discovery is more than three times bigger than a normal egg.

Surprisingly though, this week the couple discovered an even larger egg weighing 209g.

The largest egg worldwide weighed 454g and was registered by the Guinness Book of Records in the United States in 1956. The newly found egg is presumed now to be the biggest after the midcentury record-breaker.

The nearby Museum of Natural History in Braunschweig wants to display the egg in an exhibition.
