One of them has been laying for a week. The other just started today. Can you spot the difference (http://mccardeyandtherabbi.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/competitive-chickening.html)?

I can't view the photo... so I am using my imagination. Yes! I can see the difference!

So I'm guessing the second chicken stored that one for a whole week?

I suspect there's a bit of Attitude happening... ;)

Cute :D

Don't worry, I can teach you stuff about nature and countryside things. I even have horses you can pat.

OP: I am so jealous you have chickens. I want chickens!

All you needed to do was count how many small ones there were in the box.....

I don't suppose that bigger egg has a slightly crumpled-looking shell, does it?

It was, in fact, a double-yolker. I wonder if she's just been putting off laying until the renovation was over....

Big egg almost certainly has a double yolk.
Edit: Oh, I guessed too late, lol.

A number of years ago I bought the usual dozen at the grocery. Every single one was a double yolk. I think that was the last time I had a double yolk egg.

Congrats on your girls doing their job!

I was once a Candler Line Operator for a commercial poultry research farm in N.H.

That's not supposed to happen. Those eggs were meant to be together, but they weren't meant to go to market.

I think there are some egg production places that have no objection to sending double-yolk eggs to market. When I get extra-large eggs there are always at least two double-yolks per dozen. I have no problem using them, except for deviled eggs it's a bit odd.

Thank you. We're very proud. We're looking at private school placement lists for it, just to be safe. It's really - I don't like to brag, but-

Some eggs are just a little bit special aren't they?

:blush:


ETA: I mean - all eggs are special, obviously, in their own way. But some are just specialler. You know what I mean. ;)

One or even two per dozen is standard. A dozen together suggests that they were candled and meant to be used for breeding stock.

You can make money on double-yolk eggs for specialty restaurants and certain kinds of baking.

That is a big egg. I've only recently started keeping chickens and I love it. What kind of chickens do you have and how many?

Young hens just starting to lay often produce double-yolkers.

If you buy Jumbo eggs you'll get a lot of doubles!
