- Stockman’s Eggs farmer stumbled across an egg three times the size of average egg
- Egg collector named ‘Zippy’ found the giant egg that weighs 176 grams
There has been an ‘eggs’traordinary discovery on Saturday by an egg farmer in Australia.
Scott Stockman, 47-year-old farmer, was shocked after cracking open a huge egg, larger than the usual-sized egg, to discover another smaller egg inside.
“I have never seen such a large egg,” he told News Com AU of the egg laid by one of the farm’s free range hens.
“It has got everyone baffled about why it happened,” he added.
A farm representative told NDTV that a free range egg collector named ‘Zippy’ found the giant egg. The enormous egg weighed 176 grams; nearly thrice the weight of an average sized egg that weighs only around 58 grams.
Even experts are baffled by the eggs that are being called ‘babushka eggs’ because of their similarity to Russian babushka dolls.
“To be honest, I don’t really know how it’s come about,” Associate Professor Raf Freire from Charles Sturt University’s veterinary sciences school said.
Stockman’s Eggs was started in 1923 by Scott’s grandfather and produces up to 45,000 eggs a day,
