Some of the specialty markets sell them by the dozen, I know that the whole foods near me does.

When we had an egg farm, back in the mid 80s, younger hens tended to produce double yolkers....

I've probably gotten 2 double yolkers from the grocery store since then.

Thinking about it, I remember that I went to school with a guy whose family had an egg farm. Perhaps the double yolk eggs were just available in my town (Bedford) because of the local egg farm.

I think commercially I haven't seen them in anything other than jumbos (which I have been boycotting since egg prices went through the roof). But my folks used to get medium and large eggs locally for our restaurant (UP Michigan), and we saw them fairly often. Maybe it does have more to do with the age of the hens?
