Well, if anyone reading this lives in the Bay Area, head over to Olivera Egg Ranch in San Jose. Cheapest, freshest and best eggs in the area. Also cartons of 20 of double yolks as well as fresh duck eggs, my personal favorite. Been going there for a few years, pretty much every time I'm in South Bay.

I did the same thing with my cousin. She would eat the whites and I would eat the yolks.

BTW - I'm so excited - I have to share this - tonight I decided to have an egg sandwich for dinner and when I cracked open the one egg, it was a double yolk! Yay!

Had to share - lol

My aforementioned friends' young daughter found a very small frog hopping around the ranch (it was about the size of a quarter, I think), and had excitedly called her parents over to see the 'cute little frog'....and one of the chickens wandered over too.


And per my friends, to their daughter's horror and outrage.....she found out chickens will eat 'cute little frogs'.


(The little girl did eventually forgive said chicken for that, but she was NOT pleased for several days!)

Yep. We get most of ours when our hens are first laying, around 6-7 months old.

I have had double yolk eggs before - I thought they were twins, felt strange looking at it but I did eat it. I find that brown eggs have a lot of weird stuff in them sometimes like specks of blood, white pieces of tissue or whatever. I love eggs though, they really are the most perfect food. I hated it when they made eggs villains with the cholesterol stuff, but they have since backtracked, still can't go crazy on eggs but more flexibility now.

Brown eggs aren't really any different in makeup than other color eggs. Different breeds just lay different shell colors.

The thicker white in an egg is the chalazae. It anchors the yolk in the egg white. Totally normal, and all eggs have it. It is sometimes more noticeable in fresher eggs.

Aren't double eggs twins if they were to mature into chicks?

I used to love eggs but now I can hardly get them down especially after I cracked one open and it had blood spots in it. When I do buy them for a recipe or the occasional hard boiled egg I get the organic free range eggs and I rarely see them in a jumbo size. I think I've maybe seen 10 double yolk eggs in my whole life.

I agree. Bunnies lay multicolored eggs too.
