    I think I might have an egg with a double yolk at the moment, but I haven't opened it to see yet. I've only ever seen double yolker chicken eggs before, so I'm excited to see it this egg really is a double yolker [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks for the awesome pics!! Judging by the size difference in the normal quail egg and the double yolker, I'm starting to doubt that the egg I have is actually a two yolker [​IMG] Never mind, though, I'm sure I'll have more eggs in the future [​IMG]

    There have been some triple-yolkers laid by members' quails as well.
