The 163g egg might be the biggest egg in the world, because the record egg in Guiness is only 117g.

A hen, named "Harriet" in the town of Eastwood in Essex, United Kingdom gave birth to a super big egg, which is three times the size of average eggs and might be the biggest in the world.

The 163 gram egg might be the biggest egg in the world, because the record egg in Guiness is only 117 gram.

"It is the biggest egg I have ever seen in my life. Its weight dropped 14 grams in a week, and I would like to check how many yolks it has a few days later," Harriet's owner said.

Although he believes the egg is going to be listed in the Guiness Book of World Records, he doesn't want to spend 400 pounds for the registration.
