How to tell a double yolk egg without opening it?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

When my hens started laying regularly, they would occasionally lay a double-yolked egg. I only found that out when the egg was opened, but I've seen several posts from folks who can tell a double-yolked egg without opening it. How can you tell an egg has two yolks without cracking it open?

it will be very large, also you can candle it if its light enough in color or you have a good enough light.
