    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.

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

    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.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    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!
