    I get two or three a week from my golden comets (redsex links) Some are huge, poor girls must be sore after they lay those.

    If I'm not mistaken, it isn't just a double yolker, it is a double egg or an egg inside an egg. Did you notice that there is two layers of shell?

    I get 1 monster egg about 5 times a week. I have Isa Browns. I feel sorry for my girl but I wish I could figure out which one it is. And they are always double yolkers. Sorry this pic was pre-wash. Wanted to get it before I forgot. [​IMG]

    We got a double yolker on Monday! Couldn't take a pic of it cause DH used it to make cornbread muffins. [​IMG] Thank goodness he's a good cook!! [​IMG] I would have really been upset if the muffins didn't turn out.
