    Curious, " Speckles " is very different. Dont have a clue as to her bread. But every day like clock work for 4 months now she lays a 'double yolk egg' . Is that normal ? She reminds me of a loyal puppy. Stays at the door way steps back to be fed. Waits when I fill the water, then instantly drinks. And walks into the hen house, and watchs as I check the eggs without fail. Its weird , but I enjoy watching. Its as if shes a little child waiting on mom . None of the other girls do this 13 girls and 3 boys. [​IMG]

    I've heard that when chickens first start laying it is common to get double yolkers, but not consistantly! Count your blessings!

    When I was a kid, we use to get eggs from this lady that ALWAYS had a dozen of double yolks for us!!

    I have two that consistently lay double yolks, and one that lays a triple yolker at least once a week!

    Figured I'd be weird and get the strange lady. Oh I do enjoy her. Still reading on all the info . So I dont ask a question already asked. One step at a time. Its been almost a year now since I've started with the babies.

    Will take some pictures and load them .[​IMG]
