    Probably a double yoke. They somtimes happen when the chicken is young. They also just happen. They are funny looking! [​IMG]

    It wasn't a double yoke. Normal sized yoke and a lot of whites!!

    My brahma mix hen lays rather often such large and irregular shape eggs. They have never been double-yolked, just huge and very elongate.
    This spring she lays ordinary eggs, but in autumn nearly all eggs were like this.
