As for Little Redder, her system is still somewhat out of whack. Although she hasn't laid any without shells lately, she continues to lay 2 or 3 jumbos each week and small/medium eggs on other days. The first time I used one of her jumbos I hard boiled it, sliced it in half while it was still warm, spread a little butter on the halves and sprinkled it with salt and pepper. I was completely oblivious as I was about to cram it in my yapper when Eric notoiced that it had 2 yolks!! This was a first for us! Double-yolk eggs are more common as hens first begin laying. According to Wikipedia (gulp), "Double-yolk eggs occur when ovulation occurs too rapidly, or when one yolk becomes joined with another yolk."
