Yeah it's because they are young and their systems are trying to figure out how to work right. Really cool that they all laid doubles on the same day. Must be the full moon.

Gosh, that's awfully young to be laying already. I hope you don't have any laying issues later. The double yolkers are fine to eat. I can't say if they are laying them due to being young, but that very well could be. Chickens typically do not start laying until much later, so their reproductive systems are juvenile now. Makes sense that it could be due to that. Good luck!
