    We added 2 layer hybrids to our small flock and they started laying at 5 months old.
    Last week , I cracked open one the eggs and there was a normal yolk and a small sparrow sized fully formed egg within the larger egg. Has anyone had this happen ?

    It does happen occassionally. The first egg isn't released before the second one forms.
