Daredevil's Double Yolk

Remember back when I got my first blue egg? Well, here's another picture if you don't.


I caught the hen in the act.



Her name is Daredevil, because when she was a chick, she would always try to escape. She has grown into a beautiful hen. But, she's still kind of wild at times.


Well, today I cracked the egg and found a double yolk. Her first egg! Since my hens started laying about 2 weeks ago, we have gotten 25 eggs. They are starting to earn their keep! Don't you just love chickens?

Yes, I adore chickens! I just love your blog, too! I raise chickens, but I have never seen a blue egg, so that was quite interesting! The double egg yokes, although rare, do happen now and then! Our chicks began laying about one month ago and we are supplying our neighborhood with eggs! Okay, I am going back to read some more of your older posts!
