Here is a chicken that will give the Easter bunny a run for its money.

A chicken in a Chinese village laid a giant half-pound egg with two yolks and another egg inside, according to Hong Kong's New Tang Dynasty Television.

The owner, who lives in the small village in Guizhou province, said she thought her hen was dying as it struggled to lay the eggs. The hen laid a brood of five eggs.

"I'm more than 80 now, but I have never seen eggs like this before.” said the owner, who goes by the name Ms. Yang.

She credits her hen's rice diet for its supersize offspring. She said she feeds it rice because the hen doesn't like corn.

The largest egg on record, according to Guinness World Records, was laid by an ostrich in Sweden in 2008. It came in at 5 pounds 11.36 ounces
