I have been buying 'free range' eggs and have come acrossed double yolks on several occasions. It makes me think that the dish I'm about to prepare will be extra spectacular!

It's on Goffle Road. If your family lives in Hawthorne, they know Goffle Road. It's one of the big main streets in town.

You probably don't see double-yolkers in regular AA/AAA-Large eggs because they weigh too much. Due to the weight - they go into the Jumbo box.

That's the only time I've had double yolks also.

Young hens whose production cycle is not yet well synchronized often lay double yolk eggs. It happens when ovulation occurs too rapidly.

Some heavy breeds of chickens will lay double yolks as an inherited trait. I had some Production Reds a few years back that would lay double yolks fairly often.

We have a lot of predators here in this part of Texas so sadly my hen turnover rate is fairly hi and they are all gone.

Now that's something I haven't heard before! I've had double-yolkers from time to time, but never noticed a difference in taste - but that could because I simply wasn't paying attention . Do you know why this is?
