Natural Arts

Five eggs, ten yolks.


  1. WOW! I always knew that Seanhenge is a very special place. Even the chickens behave in an extraordinary manner.:)

  2. Goodness! One I could understand, but five eggs like this?

  3. Clearly some chicken has bought into the corporate promotions culture with a "Buy One Get One Free" offer.

    I have heard that some chickens always lay double yolk eggs, due to their genetics I presume, so it seems like you may have opened 5 eggs from the same generous bird, which may be understandable if they came from a smallholding nearby, but surprising if from a general store. Do please enlighten us on the source of this natural wonder.

  4. Nor had I, Jams.

    Not home grown, CherryPie, but eggs from happy hens

    Spot on, Claude,
    Natural Arts is far better. Thank you.

    well, four I could understand, but five ... :)

    if only I could 'enlighten' you. All I know is that for the past 30 years buying eggs from the same farmer I did never find so many double yolks at once.
    Altogether there were ten.
