    Default Hen dies after laying one last, humongous egg

    Eggscruciating! Roberta the hen dies after laying enormous egg

    When Chris Schauerman ventured into his chicken coop, the last thing he expected to find was this monster-sized egg.

    The farmer, from Honeyoye Falls in upstate New York, was stunned to discover the giant, which weighs in at 138g, nestled among the hay.

    'I just couldn't believe it. You open up the chicken coop and sitting inside the nest with five other eggs is just this behemoth,' he said.

    But the discovery was bittersweet for Mr Schauerman - Roberta, the chicken who had laid the egg, died a few hours afterwards.

    'I came up to the chicken and I nudged her. She was barely able to pick her head up before it fell back down to the ground,' he said.

    Mr Schauerman went on: 'I was pretty excited when I saw it but also kind of sad because I knew the chicken put forth its last effort to give this egg.'

    The egg - christened Little Roberta - is now destined for an omelette of immense proportions.

    Hell, don't sell the damn thing. Hatch it! What kind of giant chicken is inside??? Maybe it's a giant chicken that will lay more giant eggs.

    I don't think it's fertilized. I think it's simply the eating variety. Poor chicken died of exhaustion. Ouch!

    Our chooks used to make a hella noise when they laid normal size eggs, let alone a boulder like that. There's probably 4 yokes in there.

    I feel so bad for the chicken, and the fact that he called her "it"

    Poor chicken. Doesn't sound like a pleasant death.
