    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"
