    I don't think it's a breed thing. I have gotten double yokers on and off from all my girls, but I think my EE's have given me doublers more often this year.

    I have cuckoo marans and they lay double yokers occasionally, think it's all breeds?

    I've seen double yolkers from RIR, BR, EE, GCM and Leghorn... I'm sure there are more!

    my light brahma just gave me a double yolker. I have heard of tripple yolks but have yet to see one!

    Kind regards!!
