Came across this the other day and found it fascinating:
- The largest chicken egg on record weighed over 12 ounces and measured 14 inches in diameter. (editor’s note: ZOWIE)
- The heaviest chicken is 22lbs. (10kg approx.) and belonged to Grant Sullens of West Point, California. This breed of chicken is a White Sully’, and is known to have a very mean temper. It has been reported to have killed two cats and wounded a dog.
- Chickens are quite speedy little birds; they can run about 9 miles per hour.
