World Record...Almost

When getting the eggs out of the chicken coop, I came across this HUGE egg. By far the largest chicken egg we've ever seen.
Here's a picture of it next to a large size egg:
 The picture doesn't really do it justice. 
It's much more impressive in person.
I measured it and it was 6 1/2 inches around by 7 inches.         Wowza!

 Here's another picture of it next to our other eggs. It's so big, when trying to close the egg carton, it doesn't even come close to shutting.

I thought maybe we had a record holder but it turns out chickens have laid larger eggs. Hard to believe. The record holders weren't that much bigger, maybe 1/2 inch.

We cracked it open for breakfast, it had two yolks, I guess that explains why it was so big!
