(Scroll down for video) Many people have gathered to witness the unusual sight of huge eggs laid by one chicken.

Granny Yang showed her fellow villagers in Bijie, in Guizhou China, the giant egg, which her hen laid. It is almost three times the normal size.

This unusual sight caused for a big celebration in southwest China.
People gathered to see the egg. The egg, that weighed almost half a pound was cracked open.

What the owner found inside the egg was even more amazing. The egg had two yolks plus another normal sized full egg still in its shell.

“I’m more than 80-years-old now, but I have never seen eggs like this before,” Yang said.

She said that the hen started laying oversized eggs about three weeks ago and has since produced five oversized eggs.

Yang originally thought the chicken was dying when she saw it struggle, but instead the chicken laid a huge egg for the first time.

The hen does have its own preferred diet. The chicken eats rice instead of the more usual corn.
