    I just had to post this photo. My 6 month old BBW hen just started laying and this is her first effort! I have seen many DOUBLE yolkers but I have never seen a TRIPLE yolker before. The bowl it is in is 4" across.
    Happy now, Paul?

    Just imagine if you could have incubated and hatched them, you would have had triplets !!! [​IMG]

    I thought about that. In a way I am really glad that I did not put in the bator after all the times that i have read threads about double yolkers not hatching. If it had been a single, the poult would have been half grown when it hatched! LOL
