China: Home to world’s smallest and biggest eggs – Home – ShortList Magazine
A farmer was surprised to collect a super small egg from the chicken pen at their home in Yangzhou, eastern China’s Jiangsu Province. The tiny egg is just 2.5cm long and weighs 5 grams, equivalent to a 10 cent Chinese coin.
This comes two months after a farmer from Shuangliu in southwest China found that one of her chickens laid a huge 250g egg. Wang Yongbi said: “I’ve been raising chickens for more than 30 years but it’s the first time I’ve seen such a huge egg.” Wang said she fed the chickens no special food, but grains, maize and vegetable leaves. She added: “Normally the eggs are small”.
Which is interesting.
