I've always wondered this and really don't want to search it because we have so much experience here, I always come to the forum with questions I'm sure someone (s) can answer.
I remember as a kid my mom ALWAYS buying Double Yolkers, it was the best thing for me, who perfected the VERTICAL EGG as I called it - simply put, from the second the egg hits the frying pan I oush everything toward the center until the white end up no bigger than the yolks except as the swell, it lifts the egg high into the air. I carefully flip JUST until done, still shaping it so that the finished egg is just over an inch round and over 1.5 inches in height. I loved doing this, could cut into the egg with the fork or smother it with hash browns and gulp that magical golden filled bite into my mouth, proud that it made it perfectly cooked and the whole thing could fit into a spoon :)
But I wondered, what happens to double yolkers when left to mature, do they Siamese out on you, die cause of cramped space, live on as separate twins, or what????
I've seen most deformed animals long before the Internet was the state fair and the freakshow, but I can't remember ever seeing a 2 headed chicken or one with 4 legs, etc.. Are these doubles doomed to die, do they never fertilize out, what happens to them?
I'll keep it simple, but I come to you all first for the real truth, I like the Wikipedias of the world and enjoy searching, but when it comes to putting my eggs in someones hands :shock: I always like it to be a friends :) Thanks.
