    We have gotten 2 double yolkers so far and like everyone elses they are huge!! Which makes sense to me but one time at the grocery store (in my prechicken days) I bought a dozen large eggs and they were all double yolkers but the egg itself was no larger than a regular large egg. How come? Is it just that they have alot smaller yolk than the yummy-yum ones? Very curious!!
