    One of our Ameracauna girls (don't know which of the three) has been laying a lovely aqua egg every other day for a little more than a week. Yesterday, I hard-boiled her 5th one for my daughter, and surprise when we sliced it in half--it had a double yoke! Daughter ate it anyway, the yoke is her favorite part. Never seen one in all these years of eating commercial eggs. Now, when will our other 11 girls start to lay? Can't wait![​IMG]

    When my pullets first started to lay I got quite a few double yokers. As they got older the double yokes came less and less. Once in a very great while I might get one but usually just a really big egg.
