If one of the hens laid a double yoker Mum always made a fuss about what a lovely treat it was to have 'two for one' so to speak and you were lucky if you were the one got that treat.
Just a simple thing in the sum total of life but it has stayed with us and yesterday, when one of our new hens laid a double yoker we were most impressed.
Glynn, the man of the house, was the lucky recipient of our first double yoker.
I sent him a copy of this photo along with these words -
This is no joke,It has a double yoke.
We have four hens and two of them are laying regularly now so we are getting at least 2 eggs a day. It will be even better when the other two catch up so we can build a little surplus in the egg department.

The poem should show Glynn that it was his special day!
I love poached eggs and toast. Yum!
I always find a double yolk fun (maybe I need to get out more!). I guess because it happens so seldom!
We find them once in a while. Once we had a whole dozen. My husband loves to find them...he checks to find a particularly large egg and guesses if it is a double.
We've found a couple of them too! We don't see many but once in a great while.
