Good evening Tonya, If you can believe it, we've actually had 4 triple yolk eggs in the 8 yrs we've had chickens, now those girls, had something to cackle about! It's always fun to get those poult eggs as well. Many times they either have a white and no yolk or just the opposite. I'm putting a snail mail letter in the mail tomorrow. Thanks for your newsletters, we're enjoying them so much. I hope you can gleen some helpful hints from my letter and I included permission to print any and all info I mail you. Blessings from,The Never Done Farm
Kelle,I can't wait. Getting "real" mail is just so very nice. Maybe I will arrange a craft exchange as well through the summer issue of Plain and Joyful Living.Wow, we have yet to get a triple yolk!Many blessings and thanks,Tonya
forgive me for being a chicken novice, but what causes them to lay double yolks? i was under the impression that some breeds simply laid doubles, but i didn't know that some girls that lay singles most of the time will sometimes lay a double.
Angela,The young chickens, in their first year of laying tend to lay the double yolks every so often. I think a double yolk is formed when the egg stays inside the chicken for two days, instead of the average 24 hours.Bessings,Tonya
The poor girls! We have had a few doubles too and I swear the loudest cackling must have come from those poor ladies--kind of like having twins:-)
