    :/Well last Sunday ( a week ago) I got my first soft egg, and since I have gotten about 4 good strong shelled eggs, my first one had 3 yes I said 3 yolks, now the next two good shelled eggs have 2 each, Is this normal for first hen eggs. Will it continue. They are small eggs but still double yolks.??[​IMG]
    I am not sure if it is different hens or not, I really think they are all from one hen. In her box that I watched her nest in, but not sure. How do I get the other 7 to start??? They were all bought at the same time and I was told they were all 2 weeks old at the time I purchased. Do I need to worry?[​IMG]
