It's no Yolk!

A rare morning shot for me today.

When my lovely wife was cooking my breakfast this morning, i heard her exclaim "it's a double yolker!", so a i grabbed camera and shot through to the kitchen.

And here's the result.


It's been a while since we had a double yolker, it seems they were more abundant when i was i kid, although that could be my memory playing tricks.

Sciencey Bit : A double-yolked egg occurs when two egg yolks are released into a hen's oviduct too close together and end up encased within the same shell. Generally about an hour after an egg is laid, the next yolk is released, but due to hormonal change/imbalance, an overstimulated ovary sometimes misfires and releases the yolk too early. The shell forms around both yolks and results in a single egg.

And Sorry for the bad pun/title.
