    Bought some eggs from the farmers market....

    We had chickens when I was a kid, so I have seen this before on occasion... but not in this quantity. I'm 4 for 4 out of the 20 pack on getting double yolk eggs.. I'm wondering if this farm has short-bus chickens.

    Dang! I've never had a double yolk. (Never hit a royal flush either.) My breakfast is exceedingly ordinary -- no mutant chickens in these parts, I guess.

    The farm I get my chickens from has a double yoke producer too. I only hit it about once every 4th dozen or so. She has about 125 laying hens, so unsure if it is one or several of her chickens that do it.

    i raised chickens growing up...we saw double yolks at least 2-3 days per week. whenever i come across them now i get oddly excited about it. maybe it's nostalgia...maybe i just love eggs.

    It's not a bad thing at all, some breeds of chickens have this more often, and its awesome!

    if its a double yoke does it mean its better for you? i could understand its maybe more nutrient dense, but does it mean that the chicken was in a beter environent? the reason i ask is at my local market, they sell double yoke eggs for 2.50€ a dozen, however free range eggs from the same store are double the price. the double yoke eggs always have a very natural appearence, they sometimes have dirt and feathers on them for example. Thoughts?

    I bought a 4 pack of duck eggs a while back. All four had double yolk. Best two breakfasts of my life.

    I'm not complaining... I'll stretch these 20 eggs out about a 1/3 longer than I would without the extra yolks.

    I'm kind of disappointed in myself for it taking me 9~ months of going to the same farmers market to notice the big @$$ fridge full of eggs and local butter.... I consider myself to be fairly observant. d'oh.
