    I am soooo eggcited! this morning I cracked open an EE egg and it was a DOUBLE! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] My first one EVER in my year of having chickies! I know it's not a big deal to some but I thought it was AWESOME! [​IMG] I even wanted to take a picture but couldn't find the darn camera! [​IMG] oh well. I picked up another biggie today, maybe another double yolker? Be still my heart! [​IMG]

    I had my first double yolker a few days ago. I had a soft boiled egg and once I scooped up the yolk with my toast "soldiers" there was another yolk under the first! Yummy. [​IMG]

    We have a hen that regularly lays double-yolkers. DH jokingly calls them "pterodactyl eggs"
