  It’s no yolk – a schoolgirl reckons her pet chicken has laid the world’s smallest egg.
  它没有蛋黄耶~一名女学生认为她的宠物鸡下了一枚世界上最小的鸡蛋。
  Shannon Hayes, 12, spotted the minuscule egg, smaller than a 5p coin, next to the ordinary sized-produce in her hencoop.
  12岁的尚侬·海斯在她鸡棚中正常大小的鸡蛋旁发现了这只微型鸡蛋,它比一枚5便士硬币还小。
  And the shell-shocked youngster did research online to reveal the 1.8cm high egg is the tiniest – ever.
  她十分震惊。而后她上网搜了搜,发现这枚高1.8厘米的鸡蛋是目前最小的了。
  Shannon said: “I’m confident it’s the smallest. It is very tiny – and you wouldn’t want it for breakfast.”
  尚侬说道:“我很确信它是最小的。它是那么小,你不会忍心拿它来做早餐。”
  She keeps seven hens which lay eggs at the family home at Capel Iwan, Carmarthenshire – but she’s not sure which laid the thimble-sized egg.
  她在卡马森郡卡贝尔伊万市的家中养了七只会下蛋的母鸡,但她也不能确定是哪只下了那枚顶针般大小的鸡蛋。
  Her gran Pamela Hayes, 58, said: “When Shannon found the egg she was scared of dropping it when she brought it to the house.
  尚侬58岁的祖母帕梅拉·海斯说道:“尚侬在发现这枚鸡蛋后,很担心她会在将其带回家的途中摔落它。”
  ”We couldn’t believe our eyes because it is just so small compared to all the other eggs.
  “我们简直不敢相信自己的眼睛,因为它和其他所有鸡蛋相比实在是太小了。”
  “As far as we can see there is no official world record, but the smallest that we have found so far was bigger.”
  “就我们目前来看,鸡蛋的大小并没有一个官方的世界纪录。但是我们如今所知道的最小鸡蛋要比发现的这枚大。”
  In 2011, an American farmer claimed his hen laid the world’s smallest chicken egg, measuring just 2.1 centimetres in length.
  在2011年美国一位农户称他的母鸡产下了世界上最小的鸡蛋,仅长2.1厘米。
  But that was beaten in 2014 by an egg one millimetre smaller in size, laid in Somerset by a hen called Muffin.
  但是2014年一枚鸡蛋因比它小1毫米而打破了这项纪录。那枚鸡蛋是在萨摩赛特一只叫“小松饼”的母鸡下的。
  However, Shannon’s perfectly-formed egg is at least two millimetres smaller than that – just 1.8 centimetres in length.
  然而尚侬的这颗完美鸡蛋仅有1.8厘米,至少比之前的那颗鸡蛋小了两毫米。
  She has ruled out making a tiny omelette with the egg – and has put it in the fridge for safe keeping.
  尚侬不打算用这只鸡蛋摊成一张微型煎蛋饼,她已经将它放入冰箱安全储藏。
