Something to look for next spring:
There are only 6 eggs in the pan. You can’t tell because 3 of the eggs were double-yolked (I broke one yolk so that one’s harder to see.)
I wondered if this happens more in the springtime, that’s when this photo was taken. It’s great to notice the seasonal effects on eggs when you have access to local, outside, foraging, pastured hen’s eggs. Light, weather, pasture conditions and so many other things effect the eggs. Things you’d never notice when eating commercially raised eggs from caged hens raised inside under artificial lights.
I called the friendly folks at Zweifel Farms to ask them why so many double yolk eggs sometimes appear, like this, and they told me that, yes, there are more double-yolked eggs produced in the springtime and also that young hens just beginning their egg-laying careers and older hens who are coming to the end of egg-laying days are more likely to produce double-yolked eggs.
I learned something new!
