    I am consistently getting double yolkers but I'm not sure which bird it is. Is this unhealthy??

    It isn't unhealthy in and of itself, but has the potential to cause strain and other issues. There isn't really anything you can do about it, so I would recommend you simply keep an eye out for signs of egg binding and prolapsed vent. The double-yolk-layer will be much more at risk for these.
