Newbie Chicken Lady Here!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi all, I'm new to this chicken stuff, just got my first 6 chickens Friday and they laid the 1st 2 eggs Monday each egg was small, irregularly shaped with 3 yolks!  I have googled the 3 yolk phenomena and found that it's kind of rare, but what are the odds, 2 in one day!  2 eggs laid yesterday and one of them broke in the nest, but it also had 3 yolks!  haven't cracked the remaining egg, but may have to take a pic to show you all! 

 

 

My chickens are all the same breed, Golden Sexlinks

 

Ive always had cats, but I'm loving the chickens.  Waiting for them to acclimate to their new home so I can let them wander in my back yard occasionally.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! Congrats on your new chickens clap.gif I've never heard of eggs having three yolks but I'm sure if you pop by the egg laying section members there should be able to help you. Here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/18/chicken-behaviors-and-egglaying
Are your sexlinks Young? Onetime so when pullets are just starting to lay their egg laying machines can get things a bit wrong and you can get some funky eggs.

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Thank you, yes, my chickens are 4 months old.  Figure this is a temporary anomaly.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
