    Caroline, my Buff Brahma, just presented me with this egg, her first ever double yolker(candled and saw two yolk shadows). What is going on here today?! The bad thing is that I am collecting Caroline's eggs, and only hers, for someone this week and there's no way it will hatch. Hey, Karen! Do you want me to send you this one anyway, LOL?! I doubt it would fit in any turner unless you have a goose egg one.

    Cyn, mine started doing that, I got a bigger egg everyday for 6 days straight. All double yolkers. Here is the biggest one so far- 3 1/4 inches long and over 4 ounces. A whole new meaning to Quarter pounder!!!

    It's so weird that today both Sunny and Caroline presented me with these. And then Sunny's having only one yolk, but three blastodiscs...weird egg day at my house!
