Holy Giant Egg, Batman!

We get some really big eggs here at Red Wicket. Eggs that are so big, we can't put them in cartons because the carton won't close. Eggs that are so big, there isn't an egg size category for them.

This egg is bigger than all of them. The biggest chicken egg I've ever seen in my life.

On the left is a standard size large egg, in the middle of the "size large" range. It weighs 60 grams. A Jumbo egg weighs more than 71 grams.

On the right... this monster weighs 114 grams. I can only say one thing: OUCH.
