Double Yolked

I’ve been eating organic free range chicken eggs for a few years now. I find them tastier than the regular eggs. I also tend to buy extra-large eggs because, well, I’m in the “bigger is better” crowd when it comes to eggs :-).

During my many many years of buying eggs I’ve occasionally come across double yolks. But this past week has been unbelievable: twelve double yolked eggs in a row. The first one was funny and I showed the kids who’d never seen one. Then I cracked the next one, a double again. And again and again. So all five us had double yolked eggs for brunch that day. Today, in the mood for eggs again, I reached into fridge and did the last 2 eggs from that carton. Doubles again. Unbelievable. And quite cool. The kids are rather giddy over the whole episode. And I wonder what the probability is.  A quick check on Google claims about a 1 in 1000 or so occurrence. Having twelve in a row is much less likely, it would seem. Maybe I need to go buy a lottery ticket…
