Supersized hen egg in Texas had another egg inside

Submitted By AP Wire Service

ABILENE, Texas (AP), May 31 - A Texas woman who found an egg the size of a baseball in her chicken coop cracked it open to find another full egg inside.

Cookie Smith of Abilene found earlier this week what she calls the ``mutant super egg'' that was an inch longer and triple the weight of a regular hen's egg. She initially took pictures of the egg and showed photos to her co-workers at an Abilene hospital.

She cracked it open only after an Abilene Reporter-News (http://bit.ly/KgoXCA ) photographer accompanied her home. Inside was a large yolk - and another intact normal-sized egg.

Smith says she knows the eggs may have been OK to eat, but she's opting to pass.
