    I cracked open our first four eggs today, We didn't want to eat them since they are still on medicated chick starter... But I was DYING to see inside. I cracked open four eggs, that I guess were all by the same chicken and were all laid with a day in between. Two of the four had double yolks! I couldn't believe it! These eggs are barely banty size since they were her first! [​IMG]

    I kinda wonder if she was trying to lay every day, but wasn't getting it quite right and kept getting them stuck together? LOL

    I've read that double yolks are pretty common among the those first eggs. I also read that those eggs are safe to eat, even tho' they were on medicated chick starter.

    You should have scrambled them up and fed the Chickie's with them, protein and medicated free food. Waste not.
