    Can you tell they have 2 yolks by just looking at 'em? Are they bigger? Or is it just random? If they look the same, I wonder how the factory would tell. I have a friend that gives me eggs from her chickens, have yet to see a double yolk.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

      Thats what Im talking about. They might be 36 though, can't remember for sure. They're slightly cheaper when you buy that many here.

      HAHA! That would be a lot of eggs! I think the bf and I could do it

      • I want chickens! How many chickens would you need for say 5 dozen eggs a week?

        Comment


        • At least 9. I hear young healthy hens will produce about an egg a day. 5 dozen eggs a week is 8.5a day so round up to 9 = 9 chickens. Thats under optimal conditions though, I think in practice you might want a few more in case some of them don't lay every day for whatever reason. I don't have any chickens but my aunt does and I also want a flock so I've been looking into it.

            At **LEAST** 9, under ideal conditions. If you only have hens, they will probably realistically lay about one egg every 2.5 days. If you have a rooster around, they will lay eggs far more regularly.

            Also note that they will only naturally lay during the spring, summer, and early fall.

            • well and only in summer unless it gets too hot. The hens around here stop laying much when the heat turns up.

                You can't tell just looking at them, it's random. And I'm told they shine a light through to inspect them, although I could be wrong about that. They definitely do something to detect it since the eggs I bought that had one said they were not inspected.

                • The eggs are bigger too. One tray we bought last month had 3 (!) double yolkers in it.

                  • And then after a few years, they will stop laying so much and you will have to decide whether you want to keep them as pets until they die or butcher them as stewing chickens. Buying eggs from a local farmer seems so much easier to me.

                    • It's called "Candelling" an egg.

                      Yes, a very bright light is shined against the egg, and the shadow of what is inside is seen. It's quite easy to detect big blood spots, double yolks, or even little chicks.

                      We have a friend with hens in her yard. Yum!

                      • I have some friends who were both morbidly obese. First she got gastric bypass surgery, and then he did. They've had a delicate time healing, and she ended up needing her gall bladder removed a little while after the surgery. Finally, their situation seems to be stabilizing.

                        And what do I see but a post in which they ask their family and friends to vote for them to win dozens of free cupcakes from a local artisan cupcake bakery.

                        -sigh-
                        YOU GUYS -- THEY WON. THEY WON FRUITY PEBBLES CUPCAKES.

                        I would cry, except I'm too busy shaking my head. I hope they enjoy that second gastric bypass surgery because the first round didn't take.

                          Sam's club needs pallets of eggs. The most I can get is 36 wrapped together
                          I have bought cubes of 15 dozen there.

                              I just cracked open a dozen eggs this morning and 3 were double yolks. Eggs were pretty much normal size to.

                                I own chickens, and to get 5 doz. you would need closer to 12 birds. Lots of factors affect egg laying. They usually lay 1 egg per day, but you would probably get 5 eggs per bird during the week.
