Some people wonder if it’s safe to eat a double yolk egg. Not sure why to be honest. Maybe because it’s just not normal… but if you wondered:
The answer is that it’s not only perfectly safe to eat, but is said to bring good luck when you find them.
What causes the double yolk? A double yolk occurs in an egg when a chicken releases two yolks into the same shell. Double yolks are usually produced by young chickens. Since their reproductive systems have not fully matured, they periodically release two yolks instead of one. Double yolks can also come from older chickens nearing the end of their egg producing period.
I haven’t seen a double yolk egg in a while. I can tell you one thing though: When I get the next one it will definitely be mine to eat 😉
