    Should I expect many more double yolkers? Or was this just beginners luck? lol

    We have an Americauna who lays little blue eggs too. She just started laying and her 6th egg was a double-yolker! Too fun! [​IMG]

    Two of my new layers give me double yolks almost every other day. So fun!
     
  8. Well, isn't that fun! We have been getting eggs for almost a year now and it is still like an easter egg hunt every day!

    We got the most double yolkers from ours the first few weeks. I just got my first EEs so I'm looking forward to an egg like that!

    Congratulations (twice!)!! I found that the double yolkers happened with the new layers, not so much with the seasoned pros.
