    I finally got another DOUBLE YOKER and this one was from an EE girl, we cracked it open to find to perfect yokes and both were FERTILE - my little banty roo is doing something right ( he really loves his EE girls )


    here it is with two other eggs we got today one reg and onefrom my banty girl


    trying to show how big it is with the others ( 7 of these are from today)

    and finally here is the yokes both have the bullseye - hard to see but it is just above the glare


    I love getting these big eggs [​IMG]

    Very cool! When my Barred Rocks started laying before Thanksgiving, on of my bigger hens layed a double yolker everytime for about a week and a half, then no more, ever! They were huge eggs like yours. Hope yours lays a few more for you!! [​IMG]

    I dont think putting a double yoker in the bator is a good idea I dont think both chicks will live.
    yeap it made a nice sandwhich very yummy !! and I know which of the girls laid it so today she will get a nice treat.

    that basket is the " over flow " I have two of the large egg crates that hold 30 eggs each and they are both full !! my girls are really laying like crazy - 7 in one day is the most so far.

    I love getting double yolkers. they are sooooooo fun!

    I have feeling that our eggs are fertile too, b/c they have a light bull's eye in them.

    Well I have not gotten any more doubles since the other day - but I got 10 eggs yesterday out of 16 hens - so far today 8 - man the frig is filling up I am over run with eggs LOL.
    I got a few orders this weekend to sell some - so that will free up space thank-god and as soon as the bator is done with the duck eggs I am going to clean it up and set a few chicks in there.

    wow - I cant believe how well my girls are doing
