    Yesterday I picked up this egg, is there such thing as a triple yolk? This egg is ginormous

    I have heard of triple yolk eggs as well as a fully shelled egg within an egg.

    The most yolks ever found in one chicken egg was nine. so possibly it might be a triple:p:p

    Thankyou for the reply. This egg doesn’t even fit in the carton! Could it be a triple yolk?
