    i was thrilled when i had a hen laying doubles. some hens do that the for awhile when they 1st lay. there is nothing wrong with her, and i don't think it is hurting her even if you could prevent it. my hen was a meaty that never got froozen and i eventualy sold her.

    My EE has given me about 3 or 4 double yolkers and I'm always glad to get them. Most people here would's like a special surprise. She won't (or shouldn't) continue laying them all the time but enjoy them while you get them.
