    My girls were thinking twins this morning! We got 2 of the biggest eggs we'd ever seen. They each had 2 yolks.

    Here is one of the eggs next to one of the last supermarket larges I have around.

    That is a great picture! x2 You can see clearly where the whites are together. Too bad they don't do that when they get older! Thanks for sharing, and a good morning to YOU (And your girls)!

    My Nana's Chickens used to do that sometimes. She raised rhode island reds.
