    The first three eggs from my buff orphingtons have been double yolks...? While it is extra exciting, we are wondering if there is any known reason for that? Will it continue ??

    Double Yolkers?!?! Yay!!! Will it continue? Probably not. She'll likely get her innards worked out and start to release only one yolk at a time.

    It happens sometimes when they start laying. Should sort itself out
