    Happened to me twice in a row once. I thought I had a carton of eggs from mutated chickens or something, but the rest turned out being fine.

    I bet my wife once years ago (before we had a dish washer) dishes for a month on the subject. I said that a particular egg was so big it was going to be a double yolker, she said not, I won!

    How can people who are pro-life eat eggs? Isnt that an ethical conflict?

    Incidentally, the yolk in an egg is not the chicken embryo. It is the nutrients that would feed the chicken. The eggs we eat are unfertilized, meaning there is no chicken fetus in the egg. I never knew that until a few days ago. I always assumed the yolk is what would become the chicken.

    This happens when two yolks are dropped from the ovary at the same time. Because they are so close as they go through the oviduct, they are treated as one yolk and only one shell is made. Double-yolk eggs are usually produced by young chickens whose laying cycle has not yet been established, but some chickens are genetically more likely to lay them regularly. Sources we've found online differ considerably as to the odds, ranging from 0.1% to 5%.
    Two yolks, one egg

    They may not be fertilized, but eggs are "potential" life. 'course, so is everything we eat.

    or he would somehow make a connection with "2 yolk, 1 egg" to "2 girls, 1 cup"

    Occasionally they ARE fertilized, resulting in a TRULY yucky experience when you crack them open!

    0.1 to 5% but just recently I found that people that like the French or have French ancestry find it necessary to vote Republican in the next election. Funny huh.

    Speaking of egg knowledge. A couple years ago I started eating healthier which included having egg whites for breakfast, so I looked up what all the egg lingo meant. It's good to know that even though some have a color preference, brown and white eggs are actually equal.


    Grading by quality and size

    The US Department of Agriculture grades eggs by the interior quality of the egg (see Haugh unit) and the appearance and condition of the egg shell. Eggs of any quality grade may differ in weight (size).



    • U.S. Grade AA eggs have whites that are thick and firm; yolks that are high, round, and practically free from defects; and clean, unbroken shells. Grade AA and Grade A eggs are best for frying and poaching, where appearance is important.
    • U.S. Grade A eggs have characteristics of Grade AA eggs except the whites are "reasonably" firm. This is the quality most often sold in stores.
    • U.S. Grade B eggs have whites that may be thinner and yolks that may be wider and flatter than eggs of higher grades. The shells must be unbroken, but may show slight stains. This quality is seldom found in retail stores because they are usually used to make liquid, frozen, and dried egg products, as well as other egg-containing products.






    Color of eggshell






    Although egg color is a largely cosmetic issue, with no effect on egg quality or taste, it is a major issue in production due to regional and national preferences for specific colors, and the results of such preferences on demand. For example, in most regions of the United States, chicken eggs are generally white. In some parts of the northeast of that country, particularly New England, where a television jingle for years proclaimed "brown eggs are local eggs, and local eggs are fresh!", brown eggs are more common.

    In February 1976, the British New Scientist magazine, in discussing issues of chicken egg color, stated "Housewives are particularly fussy about the colour of their eggs, preferring even to pay more for brown eggs although white eggs are just as good"



    Misconceptions

    Free range does not imply in any way that the hens were fed any differently than on normal commercial farms. The label "free roaming" does not describe feed supplies, which means that free-range hens can be fed the same animal-derived byproducts or GMO crops as in other non-organic farms. This is also the main reason why free-range eggs are cheaper than organic eggs.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_%28food%29


    I heard somewhere that free range eggs tasted better because the chickens ate different plants, bugs, etc. However I think I later read that was a misconception.
