Double Yolks!

I've been buying jumbo eggs from Winco for a couple of years. Right now they're pretty cheap, about $1.19/dozen. I've gotten a couple double yolks in that time, but in this last dozen, I've had two eggs that had double yolks! Granted, the yolks are smaller than single ones, but I'm still tickled about it!

Every now and then , when I collect eggs from my chickens, there will be one egg slightly bigger than the rest. Crack it open, and sure enough, a double yolk. I get a kick out of it every time I see it.

Love getting the double yolks, especially when I use to raise cornish cross meat chickens. The eggs were always jumbo, and the yolk were deep orange. Those chickens were fed corn, barley, and whatever insects an grubs they could find while roaming about the yard. When they saw a mouse, or rat, or other small rodent, look out. That critter was gone in seconds flat. Those birds laid superior eggs, and the roosters were very tasty. Mmmmm, double yolks.

There was a corner store in my neighborhood that guaranteed double yolks in every egg. And he never got word that one egg had only one yolk. To bad, he died and the family closed the store.

When I was a little girl, I'd brown paper bag jumbo eggs of six for my parents Mom and Pop grocery store...all of them had double yolks. They were so big, they really had full size double yolks. When I grew up and left home, single yolks looked so strange.

I love double yolks! I remember my mom would sometimes buy a dozen double yolks. Not sure where she'd get them. Definitely not at the grocery. It may have been at the butcher shop that also sold some produce. Anyway, I clearly remember her tricking my little brother with them one day. She told him tapping the egg twice to break it open would give it 2 yolks. She proceeded to do that with 2 eggs and got 4 yolks. He said to try for 3. She said she didn't think it would work but she tapped it three times and got a triple yolk! Boy were we all surprised! We laughed so hard!

I have never seen three yolks. What a rare find, and at such a 1 in a million chances. I'd say it was perfect timing. Good story.
