    My Production Red; Mcnugget, has been laying double yolkers for 2 months straight, since the day she has started laying. I hear they grow out of this but ITS BEEN TWO MONTHS! Is this normal?
    I also want to hatch some chicks from her this spring, but is it possible if she keeps laying double yolkers?

    I am actually quite amazed at my hens. Every single on of them hasn't missed a single day since they had started laying and they are handing out pretty nice sized eggs.

    I love it when they first start laying and lay the double yolkers. Its like a suprise every time you crack one. Mine have never done this for that long, but I'm sure she will outgrow it.
