    Today I got my second "super super jumbo duel egg" as I call them. From what I can tell it is two eggs fused together. The last one had three yolks. I know that my hens layed 8 for 8 yesterday so I dont know why it looks like two eggs together. Can anyone figure why this would happen? The one pic is next to a quarter and an extra large egg according to my egg scale. I will email the pics to my computer :( it won't work from my phone.

    You should have made a picture of the triple yolker!!!! It's a once in a lifetime type of egg. I had one about 5 years ago and never saw another since then. It is entirely possible for a hen to lay a doubleyolker one day and not the next. Just as usual, keep an eye on the vents to be sure that there are no laying issues as in being egg bound! and that they have ample food and water. And take pics of the next triple yolk!!! Have a great day!

    Sorry. I could only upload one at a time. This is the one next to the extra large egg and quarter. Those two eggs make the quarter look tiny. I measured the egg and it is 2 3/4 inches long! No way that's fitting in the cartoon!

    And here is my rubber egg. It wasn't deflated like this when it was freshly layed but that happened in the fridge. I was really fascinated by its squishyness lol[​IMG]
