Double Yolk Eggs Are Cool

I decided to post about our recent egg experience because it was so amazing, I couldn't not share! Basically we found that 2 of our eggs had TWO yolks each:

My husband, Paul said he didn't want egg and toast sandwiches for breakfast, but I defied him and made him two anyway. This is what came of it:

I thought the yolk explosion was pretty funny. For some reason, Paul didn't see the humor in it.

I went and did some research. Apparently this is when a hen ovulates too rapidly, which is caused by 1 of 3 things:

Heredity - What we blame all of our flaws on.
Hybrid hens - The main source of the eggs and meat you buy in supermarkets.
"Unsynchornized production cycles" - Huh?

(Thanks yet again Wiki, you never let me down!)

Not content with this and just to take the piss, I emailed the egg company to see what they'd have to say about our recent experience. Here's the email:


No response.

Which was fine.

But the next morning, THIS:

I seriously felt like I had won the egg lottery! Was this really happening to me???

So yet again I emailed the company to tell them the news. Who cares if I'm immature and I was wasting their time? This was freaking unheard of in my neck of the woods! Plus I was bored and wanted a good laugh.


Still no response.

Either the customer service really sucks in this country, or they're scared I'm going to sue them for more mutant eggs.

I'm really contemplating sending in the Chicken Police:

  9. when I was a kid, we always had 2 yoke eggs, I guess there was a chicken fertility clinic in the town who knows. Also the yoke explosion, he needs to NOT wash that, take a hint from Lewinsky, it could be worth millions one day. I should probably mention we had a lot of lead paint in our bedrooms when I was a kid too.
