    i have a few coturnix quail that are just starting to lay and today we got a very large egg about twice the size of the ones we have been getting and i was wondering if any one here has ever found a double yolked quail egg.

    I have found several, especially just after my coturnix started laying. [​IMG]

    I have found double yolkers, in Quail,Chicken, Pheasants, Pigeon, and peafowl. most from first time layers.
