    I had heard of double yolkers but this was my first experience in getting one, what a surprise I got! Lol.

    I have gotten several double yolks, but i was so surprised when I saw my first really HUGE egg. [​IMG] My kids thought it would be a triple! [​IMG]

    Gotta love those doubles! My sons thought they were 'bonus' eggs because of the double yolks!

    Enjoy 'em while you get 'em. It's sometimes short-lived.

    Does it have anything to with age? Why does it happen?

    Quote:That's just what I thought when I looked at the picture. Nice deep orange, not that puky yellow color from the store eggs.

    You know that hen did some clucking that day!

    We've had one double, but one of the yolks cracked when I opened the egg, so no pretty pic for me [​IMG]

    Thinking out loud here... but if a double yolker was fertilized and then hatched... what would the outcome be? Siamese chickens? (No, that wasn't a serious question but I do wonder...)
