Frozen double yolkers

It's still cold out there! Like 8 degrees cold!!!!! I've been trying to collect eggs quickly and for the most part it's been working. Except for the ducks. I checked their nest for several days straight and when there were no eggs, I just assumed they quit because of the cold. I should have known better, they are Khaki Campbell's after all. Today I decided to check and found 4 eggs in the nest. Frozen solid! I brought them in the house and set them in the sink to cook for the critters breakfast. After they thawed enough to pull the shells off I found I had 2 regular eggs and 2 double yolkers. I had never seen a frozen double yolk egg, so of course I had to take a picture:

I've seen lots of double yolk eggs (especially duck eggs) and lots of frozen eggs...just never a frozen double yolk egg! Weird huh?

  1. Wow, that's so cool!!! It's 60 something degrees where I live today, & I've never even seen a frozen egg let alone a double yolker lol. So thank you for sharing.

    1. It's possible to freeze eggs, but the shells tend to crack.

  3. That is strange looking. So far none of our eggs have frozen our chicks tend to lay in the boxes. We've had a couple doubles but one of them was enormous!
