At first I thought, a double yolker?? Pfft!! That's typical of a young Hen. Then, I learned it was from China and all I thought, Pfft! That's typical of a young hen raised in toxic waste.

When a hen first starts spitting a butt bullet a day out she will produce a few of these.

Yeah, it's not hard to blame lax dumping and non-existant environmental laws from China.

How recursive.
When I worked at a chicken farm, we sold the double yolks seperatly.
Bakers liked them and sauciers liked them.

How did we know they were double yolked?
The candler told us.

I cracked open a duck egg with a double yoke about a year ago. Best morning of my life.

According to the UK's Guardian, the 87-year-old woman who owned the chicken thought it was dying as it tried to lay the egg.

Bet the chicken did too

I wanted to make a 3-egg omelet one day.  Got 3 eggs in a row with double-yokes.

Weird.

Would anyone else have a problem eating that?  Double yolk, sure.  But eggception... a little too freaky for me.

Maybe the chicken was constipated for a few days and then ate some Docalax.  You can lay some monsters.

When we raised chickens we would get double-yolks but never an embedded egg.  I used to hate going out there and seeing a chicken that had the occasional blowout or 'prolapse' after laying a massive egg with their insides all laid out behind it.

Out of all the thousands we had over the years I'd seen it maybe 20 times and only saved one.  If you catch them while they are in the process of blowing out you can help them egg and then shove their guts back in and they can sometimes make it.  But usually it happens when you aren't around and the other chickens peck at the guts until the chicken dies.

I've never had a prolapse but I've lost a couple hens to impacted eggs. Even after breaking the egg internally, which is something I would have sworn I'd never do.

Chicken raising is messy business.

Also, Double yolks are wicked common. A shelled egg inside a shelled egg is a lot more rare, but it does happen, and is not a sign of the apocolypse. Also also, fresh eggs are awesome. Bright orange yolks... and there is a definite flavor difference. I can't eat nasty pale yellow store eggs anymore.

This happens here in the states too. In 31+ years of the egg business, I have seen it only twice.

Messy indeed.  And a life-long suspicion about all cats.  Nasty when a stray pulls a leg through the chicken wire and eats the foot off one of them.

Yeah the eggs are tons better.  I'm not a fan of eggs from the store.  I think it is because home raised chickens get to walk around all over the place and eat lots of bugs, worms, and grass. And it took me a long time before I could stomach homogenized cow's milk because we had milk goats.  I remember being confused when I got out on my own and I poured a quart into a pitcher and didn't have to stir the cream into it.  And how relatively sour yet weak it tasted.  Hick problems.

I can't count the double-yolk eggs I've seen; it's really not that rare.

It was a double yolker plus another small shelled egg inside a very large shelled egg. Unusual, noteworthy, but not completely unheard of.

The last few days, I've been thinking about building a small coop on my property and getting a few hens.  You might have just convinced me to not do this.

Nah, go for it. Yardbirds are great. Nothing beats a really fresh egg. Plus, chickens eat ticks, grubs, and other bad lawn bugs. Years back my area had a terrible catterpillar plague, and our yard looked GREAT - a lush, green oasis in a sea of brown devestation. If you hand raise them from chicks, and handle them daily, they will be friendly like little dogs. We have pics of our kids hauling them around the yard in the wagon, driving the little play car with a chicken in the back seat, chinkens roosting in the playhouse, following the kids around the yard in a little chicken parade... We have a buff that will run over to you and squat on your feet with her wings spread for scritches. It freaks out the UPS guy, which is funny.

We were the first on the block to have chickens, but it's become a bit of a neighborhood thing now that everyone saw how cool ours are : ).

And most of the stuff you just mentioned is my reasoning for thinking about it.  From what I've read, they are pretty friendly and petlike (if raised properly), good for insect reduction, possibly good for my crappy rock filled yard, and the quality difference between fresh eggs compared to store bought.  I'm shying away from having them for meat because I'm a big baby when it comes to killing my "pets" to eat them.

Until now, I didn't read anything at all about coming home to a dead chicken with its guts blown out behind it though...

It hasn't turned me off of it completely, but that info is now something that factors into the decision.

Yeah, Like GanjSmokr says.  Get some chickens.  We had a pretty large coop and raised about 100 or so per year so our incidence of prolapse was 20 out of thousands.  Those are pretty good odds.  And some of them do act like dogs.  We had a long driveway and when we would jump in a vehicle to leave there was always one chicken (henrietta) that tried to jump in with us.  And when we wouldn't let it in it would follow us up to the blacktop.  If we were driving to the post office to get mail and were gone only about 20 minutes or so it would be still waiting there for us when we got back.  The driveway was about 1/2 mile.  Henrietta lived about 6 years I think.

You do have to learn about grinding beaks and stuff though.  Some chickens can be pretty mean to each other.  They don't mess with each other much when they are out of the coop, but when they go in they start to get pissy with each other at times.  We just used a wheel grinder and blunted the beak slightly.

We are in a village where the older folks who have been in town govt for a coon's age have nothing better to do than pass wacky laws. We are zoned for a limited number of birds, five per acre, female only. (That one makes sense - roosters suck) We can't sell the eggs, only eat them or give them away, and we can't kill the birds for meat. Ours die of natural causes and are buried in the little pet cemetary out back. Rural people problems.
 
2013-03-19 02:26:48 PM  
Can't say I've seen that one before. I've seen loads of double yolkers but never an extra egg inside. We have five layers right now, we lost one due to impacted eggs.

They could be testing out bigger fake eggs and dropping that stuff inside.  Only a few weeks ago a story about concrete in walnuts also covered the issue of fake eggs also being peddled in China with realistic shells and some sort of concoction inside.
