Cuban chicken has a lot to squawk about

In case you missed the news the first time around, a 1-year-old hen in Cuba laid a giant egg. National Geographic News reported:
The 6.34 ounce (179.7 g) egg was laid by a 1-year old hen in Campo Florido, Cuba. It is reported that the egg was 0.35 ounces (10 g) heavier than the current record-holder from the Canary Island with an egg weighing less than 6 ounces (170 g).
The chicken's owner, Estela Guerra, said she thought it could be the world's biggest chicken egg.
Everyone is amazed at how large it is.
Geez, I guess so. Poor hen.
