One of my ancona finally started laying today. (they are almost 6 months old.)

Here is my very first ever white egg, in between the two eggs I got from my RIR fatties today. We thought it was odd... somewhat more elliptical than oval... how could that be?




Mystery Solved:




A double yolker. Jackpot!

If left to hatch would a double yoke actually produce twin chicks or would they not fully develop since it's a rather small space to grow?

Very beautiful eggs! Congratulations! I wish my pullet would also start laying(almost 6 months old!)...... That picture of the egg being fried sure makes my mouth water....beautiful double yolks!

Speckledhen tried to hatch a double yolker but unfortunately the chicks didn't make it at hatching time, but it sure was a fun and educational adventure.

Happy laying!

Thanks Arlee453, I read about Specklehen's double yoker story. Boy I wish they would have hatched, but very educational none the less.
