More to egg than meets the eye

June 13, 2006

On Mother's Day, a Rhode Island Red hen owned by Sara Swartz, 17, of the Williamsport area, laid an egg measuring 4 inches long by 3 inches across. Sara's mother, Jo Ellen Swartz, said people who saw the egg wanted to see how many yolks were inside. She cracked it open and out popped a single yolk - plus a normal-size chicken egg.

The egg dwarfs the others in the Swartzes' refrigerator.
