My RIR Miss Henry was the first to mature and lay. She now lays very regularly at 23 weeks old. She is the first to lay very early in the morning, and she is quick about getting in the nest and back out. She layed a double yolker about a week ago, and now another yesterday. This egg is huge, I put it on the antique egg scale and it bottomed out, too big to measure. I know Miss Henry laid an egg four days in a row before the double yolker. I had been under the impression that a hen would skip a day laying before giving a double yolker, and now I know this was not a correct assumption. So she must have ovulated twice in a day? I am not quite understanding the biology, any help? As you see the double yolker is lighter in color from her normal egg, why? Her normal eggs run about a 21 or 22 on the egg scale, not all that small for a new layer. Thanks all!
