    My Black-Sexlink started laying last week!! Today I went out to the coop to find this egg!! And all I could say was "Holy Egg"! Her eggs are a little bigger than store bought eggs and this egg is twice the size of her regular eggs!! :) It was a double-yolker, as I guessed!! :) She got tomatoes after this. :) A little bit blurry

    I got a double yolker inside a double yolker. When I broke the first egg the yolks broke too.
