Deviled Eggs? I Am Not yolking, It Happened!

dcarch7April 4, 2013

In my "The Devil made me do it" thread, I talked about I made deviled eggs. I didn't say that I made a second batch.

I went to the supermarket to get some more eggs for the second batch. I was amazed the three eggs I opened in a row, all were double yolk eggs.

I got curious tonight, and Googled about double yolk eggs. I read there was a lady who got 6 double yolk eggs from six eggs. The odds for that to happen was trillion-to-one odds. So I went to the refrigerator and took out the eggs.

Double yolk! single yolk and double yolk again!

5 out of six! Wow! I still have 6 more to go.

I am not cracking anymore tonight. I am not fond of omelets.

I have taken a video, if you think I am Joking and making up a story.

Eggsactly what I was thinking on the lottery ticket. I'd be scrambling like mad to get to the store and buy one.

Egg-cellent comments!!

I used to work in hatchery chicken barns and they would give us the double-yolks to take home. Hard-boiled, yum!

Haha! You guys are too funny! Your clever comments really perk my mood sunny side up.

The idea of getting Lottery tickets came to me also. I will definitely get myself a few today.

I do have many systematic statistical ways of playing lottery to maximize the benefit of winning. One of the strategies is to buy two tickets of the same numbers, which is entirely fitting for the double-yolk incident.

I will tell you part of the logic behind double numbers playing:

Almost always, there are more than one top price winners. If I have two tickets, my winning share will be doubled. In addition, I will be instantly famous, and I will charge $10,000 to go on each TV talk shows.

I know, I tend to over-think things. I am such an egghead.

Lol! Dcarch, you could go on talk shows just for how your brain works! You are a true egghead in the good sense! (There is a good sense to that term, isn't there? Someone very smart?)

You need to come out of your shell and head to Vegas.

I've had but a couple of double-yolkers over the years that got past chickpoint Charlie. Most doubles go to bakeries from what I hear and it'd make sense if it's true.

Gotta get cracking before I'm too couped up to do anything.

I don't know what to say! Someone please explain this to me.

I got curious again tonight. So I cracked open two more eggs. Well, the picture can tell you, two more double yolk eggs! 7 double yolks out from 8 eggs. Mighty strange.

The eggs on the left bowl has the three eggs from yesterday, two double yolks and one single yolk. Also interesting, overnight eggs in the refrigerator get more orangy.

I have no idea what the explanation might be,
But I sure wish I could get hold of some eggs like that!

Except for one double yolker
from a friend's chickens a couple years ago,
I've not seen any since I left the farm.
That was over 50 years ago!

If I ever found any like that,
I'd be going back and trying to get several more dozen
from (hopefully) the same batch!

My poultry guy at the farmer's market told me that some chickens (breeds of chickens? specially raised chickens? -- I don't know) always lay double-yolk eggs. He can charge higher prices for some of his eggs because he can guarantee double yolks. People around here like them, I guess because you're only eating one big fried egg but it seems like you're eating two.
So somehow you got eggs laid by the double-yolking chickens.

I wonder if they ever get twin chicks when hatching eggs?

My dad buys eggs that a farmer labels as extra large and he normally gets at least half double yolk eggs.

Here is a link that might be useful: Hatched double yolker?

Good question. The ones at the market are not fertilized, but what if they were? If two chicks did start to grow, they'd surely run out of room inside the egg. I will ask Randy at the market on Thursday.
Maybe Annie or someone else who raises chickens will tell us.
