    One of our GSL lays huge/double yolk eggs daily. Daily!
    Should I be concerned? Thanks![​IMG]

    I have one Golden Laced Wyandotte who has laid huge double yolkers twice, out of maybe 15 days of laying. She seems just fine and it's such a treat to find them! Her huge eggs seem to follow a day off.

    There is a famous breakfast joint here in downtown Chicago that only serves double youlk eggs. I never thought about it before I found my first one.

    Keeping an eye out here to see if I learn something... Thanks for the question!

    She will be 21 weeks this Friday and has been laying for several weeks now. I wonder what that restaraunt pays for double yolks! That's great!

    Younger hens tend to lay double yolks. All of my youngsters say double yolks.

    She will probably lay double yolks for two more months.
