    She's only laid about 6 eggs in her short little life, and they've all been teeny tiny, but this morning, it was teeny AND a double yoker. Is this really unusual? The yolks were extra dark and orange, even for her. I know it was fresh because I'm an over-eager egg-gatherer and I go out there every hour.
