    I thought I'd seen something on here before, but did a search and didn't come up with anything.
    One of my ducks has been laying these huge eggs - I opened one this morning and there were two yolks, and one was pretty bloody. I then opened the large one she laid yesterday and it also had two yolks, but was not bloody. Will she continue to lay eggs with two yolks, she hasn't been laying for very long. I looked for a bulls eye and did not see one.

    Thanks

    When ducks first start to lay it is very normal to get double yolkers...sometimes you might get a shell less egg....after a few weeks, you shouldnt get as many.

    Thanks.... that is pretty interesting. I will have to take one to school and show it to my students.
