Double yolk eggs

I remember when I was a kid, my mom used to find double yolk eggs mixed in with the regular eggs pretty often. I haven't seen one in probably 30 years. I've heard there are places that sell them but I've never been able to find out where they are. Does anyone know of any companies that sell just double yolkers?

I see double yolk eggs more often when I buy jumbo eggs than any other size. Usually, it's an 'exciting surprise' but you don't actually get all that much more yolk. It looks the same to me, just split in two. I liken it to the fact that twins are usually smaller in one pregnant woman than one baby would be. Consider there's only so much room in that egg shell....

If you buy jumbo eggs consistently, I bet you'd find one, sooner or later.

Me too, VeraB.
And what fun and good memories when I do.
I wish I could wrap it in plastic and bring it to dad for him to cook his special Sunday breakfast feast.
But just fond memories.

Thanks. This is the last thing that made me smile - add to thread.

Aren't the little things in life GREAT??!!??!?

When I lived in Massachusetts (late 80's) I remember seeing double yolk eggs sold in their own cartons at the local supermarket.

That's amazing. I've lived here forever and never saw that. I haven't seen a DY egg for at least 30 years. I guess I should buy jumbos if I want to see one.

I haven't seen one in quite a while either, storebought or otherwise.

Look for them in a Farmer's Market. They are available

from some of the smaller farmers. I can buy them by the dozen. I never see them in the grocery stores.

When we had hens, we would get the double yolks sometimes.

I get doub;es quite often w/ Jumbo eggs. For awhile there was at least 1 per carton. But then I stopped buying jumbos for some reason.... I think maybe they are too big to bake cookies with? That's gotta be it.
