    Check out what I got today. What are the odds that I'd get 2 huge eggs in one day. My friends laugh and ask what I am feeding my girls. Just Purina Mills.....and a ton of treats. I can honestly say my chickens are "happy chickens". [​IMG]

    The lighter one is 2.8oz and the darker one weighed 3.3oz which was just a tad more than the one I got about a year ago.

    Wow! That's great that you got two in one day.
    A fellow chicken person told me that he read in a chicken magazine that
    there's two reasons for a double-yolker, which those eggs probably are:
    1. They were stressed out by something. That could be a storm, something surprised them, etc
    2. They're (well-fed, get treats and therefore) are "pleasingly plump"! [​IMG]

    I love getting a colorful egg basket, too! You have a great variety of colors, too!

    Wow.... One even gave you money! Wish my eggs had coins on them... It would really help with the feed bill! [​IMG]
