Default OT Chicken Farmers: Double yolks

Would they have been twins? How common. I am making deviled eggs (I will put the recipe in the DE thread because they are going to be delicious.) 5 of the seven Grade A extra large) had double yolks. That seems weird to me.

We had a chicken coop growing up.... Double yolk is winning. I've had them countless times, but never from the store.

Usually that happens when the hens ovulation cycles are all out of whack, so to get 5/7 like that makes me wonder what the **** is going on at that farm

It was 4 out of 7, not 5 - I apparently need to watch some sesame street . Photobucket is dicking with me so I can't host the pics.

Chicken eggs aren't aborted fetuses, they're more like used tampons.

More like if you put a strainer under a menstruating woman, then ate the rinsed off results.

So, eating eggs is like a typical Saturday evening?

funny you say that, I once called an egg a chicken period infront of my girlfriend, and she literally doesn't eat them anymore.

To be fair she never really liked eggs that much, but chicken period sealed the deal.

We've got 26 laying hens and we get 2 or 3 double yolks a month. I think its always the same chicken but I'm far to lazy to figure out which one it is.

People are ****ed to want something like that in their house.
Also, that is likely not from a double yolk, as a double yolk would produce 2 full chickens in one egg. If fertilized there is almost no chance the chicken twins would survive naturally. I have no background in biology and nothing to back up this claim.

In our last dozen (last week) we had 6 that were double yolks. I even said to my wife I should be recording/taking a picture of this.

Ima get a lottery ticket tonight.

Some chickens and chicken breeds produce a higher proportion of double yolks. I remember seeing a chicken that laid nothing but double yolks once on TV.

At our local farm market you can buy double yolk eggs by the dozen, and they all were double yolks.

Maybe I'm just an odd case, but I didn't think double yolks were uncommon. We frequently get entire dozens of double yolkers from the grocery store.

I cracked open 6 or 7 chicken periods and made some French Toast with a little cinnamon and nutmeg yesterday morning.

No double yolks to be found

Although it goes against what Wikipedia says, my understanding is that its simply a property of how old the laying hens are... So the order goes - Small eggs come from young hens, then larger hens lay medium, large, x-large, jumbos and double-yolks...

This is based on several egg producers over the course of my life. My dads friend had a egg washing/candelling/packing site and I only ever saw double-yolks in huge eggs and years later My friend used to give me some eggs (he managed a henry and egg-production facility) and occasionally he would have the super-jumbos (big enough that the carton wouldn't close) and 80% of those were double-yolks. I have seen triple yolks and heard of massive quad ones. Apparently if you let the laying hen get that old, it only lays every 3 or 4 days and the meat is really tough and sinewy if/when you harvest it, so they tend to kill the laying hens around the point before they become jumbo layers because the market for very large eggs is small and the cost per egg (and the amount of food the hen needs to make an egg) goes way up.

But I have no clue other than perfecctly creamy/fluffy scrambled eggs (like Gord Ramsays recipe) is the nectar of goodness.
