Yesterday: The Day of Discovery

Yesterday marked a major milestone in Deerlick Springs Eggs. Jeff England, founder of the business, was collecting eggs as usual when he found the "golden ticket". What he pulled from the nest box shattered the record books, and set the bar for the term "Jumbo Sized". The egg, lain by an Americana chicken, weighed an astounding 6.6 ounces or 188 grams, setting a new American record and shattering the previous record of 5.5 ounces. Now keep in mind, the biggest chicken egg ever lain was 198 grams... We're sure this is not only the biggest chicken egg in America, but the second biggest IN. THE. WORLD.

  1. Your eggs are amazing whether they are jumbo or not! Can't wait to actually see this egg at the museum in Weaverville!
