    Abnormal is normal for pullets. I would assume she has recently started laying. I get very few double yokers from hens that have been laying for a while. My pullets layed them on a very regular basis

    We had a hen that laid a double yoke egg every day for her whole laying career.

    That may be something for the record books I have never heard of that.
