Double Yolk Eggs

Can't remember the last time I had a double yolked egg (I understand that most of them go to the bakery trade) but out of the last dozen I bought (farm shop) 5 had double yolks, and it's not even springtime!

If the eggs, (the 2 yolkers) had been left to mature and hatch normally, would there have been two chicks?

You also need two rounds of toast for the required number soldiers... a full platoon is required for double yolkers.

Some supermarkets, Sainsburys included, actually sell packs of double yolkers as a discrete product.

I had a box of 6 XL free range from ASDA with all double youlks not long ago. Also see here:

My son lives in a rural location, and buys quite a lot of his fresh produce from the local farm shop. I like going there for our bacon and eggs etc. early on a Sunday morning when we're staying with him. We quite regularly get double yolk eggs.

The shop is one of those rare things - full of wonderful produce, and not member of staff in sight. You help yourself to what you want, and leave the money in a bowl by the door. There's a price list,and you're trusted to do the right thing.

In Glasgow, southside, at the end of Victoria Road, just inside the gates of Queen's Park, (named after Mary Queen of Scots), there is a Farmer's Market on a Saturday (10am - 4pm) (First and Third sats of the month). I will check out the eggs.The Queen's Park Cafe ( est.1897, a pub) is close at hand.
