Orkney Monster Egg

By Nick Morrison

When I called on our friend Neil Croy I found him busy washing the morning eggs with a huge grin on his face.

He turned and presented me with this monster.

Egg 1

It simply wont fit in an egg box.

Egg 2

The egg on the right is what supermarkets term a large egg, the one in the middle is at the upper end of what his chickens normally produce.

Egg 3

It is 7.01 cm long and 5.34 cm in girth. The “supermarket large” is 5.72 by 4.47.
