A housewife got a big surprise when she cracked open a huge egg to find a smaller egg inside – perfectly intact.
Maria Glória de Souza collected the gigantic egg from the chicken coop in the backyard of her house in Catalao, central Brazil, after it was laid by one of her hens.
The egg was three times the size of a normal egg, weighing in at 175 grams (6.5ounces). In her 20 years of rearing chickens, Maria had never seen anything like it. “It was a super-size egg, really big. I had just taken it from underneath the chicken so it was still warm, when I realized I was holding something unusual.”
Needless to say, the two-in-one egg didn’t go to waste!
