They say you have to crack a few eggs to make an omelette, but for Corrie and Jason Adamson, owners of Simpson Orchards in Leamington, Ont., a huge egg laid by one of their chickens was more than enough. The egg was almost the size of an orange — Jason said it was bigger than any egg he'd ever seen. The Adamsons said their store was slow from the snow storm on Wednesday and with their family and a few customers around, they decided to live stream themselves cracking the egg they found two weeks
