    It probably is a multi-yolker. Let us know!

    I had one egg bigger then usually and it had two yolks inside.

    those are fun to find. I have a hen that consistently lays double-yokers. It does not seem to bother her. Those are great for scrambling!

    I got one like that just yesterday. I am going to measure it. It looks like a duck egg.
    They are really fun to find!
