  A West Virginia man is laying claim to one of the world's smallest chicken eggs. Whether it's a record remains to be seen.

  一位西弗吉尼亚州的男子宣称世界上有最小的鸡蛋。这是否是创记录还有待观察。

  It's 2.1 centimetres long, or a bit bigger than a penny, and weighs 3.46 grams - a little more than one-tenth of an ounce.

  它有2.1厘米长,稍微比一分钱大点,重达3.46克,就比一盎司多大约10分之一。

  Mr Russell, of Raleigh County, said his wife is an animal lover and she's collected cats, geese, ducks, chickens and other types of birds over the years.

  罗利县的Russell先生说他的妻子是个动物爱好者,这么多年来她养了猫、鹅、鸭子、鸡以及其他种类的动物。

  'Lo and behind, we went out and gathered these eggs. We had to do a double take. We both looked with our mouths open for about five minutes before we said a word. We said this has got to be a record.'

  我们会在外面到处收集这些鸡蛋,并且不得不获得双倍的。我们张着嘴巴互相看着对方将近五分钟,无言而语。我们说这将会创造纪录。

  'When you see something like that, you wonder how in the world did that ever happen?' Mr Russell said. 'We're still taking it in.'

  Russell先生说:“当你看到像这样的事情是,你会猜想世界上怎么会发生这样的事情。我们都还一直在思考它。”

  The state Department of Agriculture has certified the egg's size.

  国家农业部门已经认证了这个鸡蛋的大小。

  Guinness World Records lists the smallest recorded chicken egg as 2.7 centimetres, although a man from Great Britain in May claimed earlier this year to having one that was 2 millimetres smaller.

  世界吉尼斯纪录记载世界上最小的鸡蛋是2.7厘米,尽管今年五月一位来自大不列颠的男士宣称他有一颗比记录还要小2毫米的鸡蛋。

  Mr Russell said he's still undecided whether to make an application with Guinness. He does plan to preserve the egg, which he's named the John Spencer Russell egg in honour of his two grandsons - John Kenny Russell and Spencer Matthew Russell.

  Russell先生说他还没有决定是不是要申请吉尼斯纪录。他计划将这只蛋保存起来,取名为John Spencer Russell鸡蛋,以纪念他的两个孙子。
