Double Yokers

Sunday, 18th, September, 2011.

When we bought a dozen eggs from Georges Pork and Poultry who trade from the lock side at Audlem bottom lock they were advertised as double yokers, I was interested how the owner, Amy George, could tell they were double yoke eggs, I had visions of the poor chickens being fed some Frankenstein type drugs but the answer was very simple, she goes by the size and so far her judgement has been spot on as every one has been a double yoker.

Another Fine Example from Amy's Chickens.

After breakfast Jayne dropped me over at Atherstone locks where I assisted getting Nutfield and Raymond up the flight in 2 hours 45 minutes which was good going, it also meant that Jayne only had 2 hours shopping/spending time in Tamworth before she had to pick me up, which was also very good!!!.

I've been told that the reason they know they are all double yolkers is because they are the rejects bought at a market from the battery hens that can't go to supermarkets because they are too big for the boxes and therefore no good for stacking.

Makes sense. I still enjoyed mine.
