  1. Abigail says:

    As someone who raises chickens, you will find double yolk eggs are very common. Especially, in younger hens. Not much of a omen, I would say.

  2. Jenny says:

    I had two sets of twin yolks two Sunday mornings in a row. The day after the second set I found out my baby had passed and was going to be stillborn at 38 wks.

  3. Shay says:

    Yesterday while making breakfast, my boyfriend cracked open an egg… Two yolks! This morning, I just cracked open and egg… Two yolks! Good fortune or pregnancy, I’ll be happy with both! If I don’t start my period by the end of the week, then I’ll have to take a pregnancy test!

  4. Larry Francisco says:

    My Fiancee cracked 4 double eggs in a row today while cooking breakfast there in the Philippines and told me while we were chatting on Facebook messenger on our daily chat. So tell me what does this mean four double yoke eggs in a row?

  5. rukevwe says:

    i just discovered when eating a boiled egg this morning that the egg had a double yoke in it. I don’t know what it means, although my elder sister have been married for 7years now without any issues yet, I just hope and pray it will be a good omen of fertility for her.

  6. Iliana says:

    I already have 6 month old twin boys. I cracked a double yolk egg this morning. God HELP me if this means I’ll be having another set!! Lol of course I would be so happy but oh goodness..this mama needs some rest! (Who am I kidding..I don’t know what rest is anymore anyways!)

    • Donquinika Oliver says:

      Hi, so I am wondering if that was true for you. Is it? Are you pregnant? I cracked a double yolkee egg before I knew I was pregnant with twins.

      • Erica says:

        It’s true! I cracked an entire dozen eggs open at my sister in law’s house and they all had double yokes. We were talking about how weird it was and I told her it was because she had twins and they were her eggs. But then shortly after I found out I was pregnant with twins. They are 4 now. I think the omen is for whoever cracks them.

  7. Ani says:

    Need advise 😱
    My partner cracked not only 1 double yoked egg but two in one day? What does that mean.

  8. Sharon Finley says:

    I Busted A Double Yolk Egg , Tuesday At Nine . What Does That Mean ?

  9. Becky says:

    I just cracked open double yolk & haven’t seen one in a long time. We have a 16mo old & I’m 40 yrs old & we’d like to have one more before I’m too old…maybe a sign lol?? And we just had our 5th anniversary yday & I haven’t had my period come back since having our daughter (still breastfeeding), so hard to know when ovulating, so maybe something will happen now;)

    • Debora says:

      Okay I hope this is true for me. Last Saturday I got two yolks in one eg. Then this Friday, another one. Finally, today I got two two-yolk eggs. My boyfriend suggested I look what it means and I really, really hope it’s this.

  10. john says:

    i bought 2 crates of eggs and all are double yoke but yet to see any sign, in paris anyway

  11. Kristine says:

    My husband and I are trying for a baby and I’m not kidding, we’ve had 8 double yolks out of the last 10 eggs we’ve cracked. We’ve been joking that maybe I’ll be pregnant with twins soon and then I read this! Hoping that it’s a good omen!!

  12. Amber Heizer says:

    The day before I told my mom is got a positive pregnancy test she had a double yolk & from the same carton the day after I told her she had another double yolk. Now she’s thinking I could be pregnant with twins. I won’t find out for 3 more weeks. I really hope so!

  13. Earl says:

    Easter Sunday this morning and cracked open my first double yolker whilst making some breakfast. We are looking at starting a family now so could be an omen looking at some of these comments! We are off to see our friends who have just had twins shortly, so who knows! Watch this space lol!

  14. shaylynn says:

    I cracked a Double yolk eggs last week and I don’t know if I can have anymore kids I haven’t been pregnant and what 12 years but I’m just waiting to see if the double yolk egg Superstition is true I’ll let y’all know

  15. christy says:

    I was making breakfast Sunday morning, cracked open an egg with a double yolk, got on facebook a few mins later my sister had posted a pick that she had a double egg yolk. We read it could mean good fortune or pregnancy, so we did a lottery run, didn’t win. Found out the next day I was expecting! C.r.a.z.y.

  16. Serwaa AKUFFO says:

    I was trying to make some eggs for myself yesterday and found two yolks in them,today too my first egg I crack had another two yolks in them again.does that mean I will be pregnant with twins👬.lol

  17. Michelle says:

    I cracked an egg with 2 yokes this morning. I found out about one week ago that I am 7 weeks pregnant! The only other time I have seen this is when my husband got one last year when I was pregnant with my last baby! Double yokes= fertility!

  18. melissa says:

    I just cracked two eggs that had double yolks in them this morning . I am currently seven weeks pregnant so just curious as to what theses yolks mean..

  19. Rosie says:

    Omg this morning I was making my hubby breakfast and I cracked an egg open with 2 yolks and we trying to have another child could I be pregnant or maybe I’m going to get pregnant soon hmm

  20. Henry Ahiagbe says:

    I just cracked 3 eggs and found 6 yolks…
    Although, I’m planning to get married in less than 3 months.
    I wish I’m going to encounter triple fortune in all my endeavor.!!!

  21. Matt says:

    The ability of people to ignore facts they don’t like to hear never fails to amaze me.
    I have been born and raised on a all natural farm.
    That means never any pesticides or fertilizer (except natural dung) being used.
    My mothers chickens produced a double yolk egg maybe once every 2 years.
    To have whole boxes of those showing up suggests serious manipulation of said eggs and or henns.
    Just thought you should know;-)

    • Maybe… although a friend of mine told me that when they’re packaged, sometimes the double yolks (found w/candling or something) are set aside because they’re “nonstandard” … and then sometimes those cartons of “set aside” ones might make it to the store accidentally.

      I’m not sure how accurate that is. She was interested because she was a 4H-er as a kid.

    • Ellie says:

      Double yolk eggs (and other egg problems) are usually produced by hens in their first couple months of laying. A farm producing enough eggs to send our cartons have large flocks. They probably have entire flocks of young hens, which would account for higher chances of receiving double yolked eggs. It’s nothing to do with manipulation and everything to do with the nature of young, sexually mature females. Humans do the same thing: the times when you’re most likely to have twins are in your teens and nearing menopause, when your hormones are the most unpredictable.

  22. Agnes Varga says:

    My fiance asked me to make some omelette with 2-3 eggs. So I was wondering shall I crack 2 or 3. Well the second one I cracked happened to be a twin one 🙂 first time ever. Now he will get 2-3 eggs..and my bridal shower was just yesterday 🙂

    • Gemie V says:

      I had made hard boiled eggs twice this last week. Both days I had found two yolks in one egg! I just recently had my first period since I had my baby (he’s about 10 months! ) so that was hmmm nearly 2 years without one! Going with the fertility card on this one! 😉 I wonder if we should try for another lol

  23. Alyssa says:

    I cracked 3 double yolk eggs this morning and there was one or two more eggs shaped like that in the carton. Oh man that would be insane if it really is a fertility omen! That would be okay with me :).

  24. Emily says:

    I got 5 double yolks today. I’m scared to crack the rest of the carton lol.

  25. Shadow Sharp says:

    My co-worker at McDonald’s cracked a double yolk egg yesterday and today he told me his sister got engaged! I sent him this article.

  26. Johnathan says:

    My girl just cracked one and I found this site and comments. Funny thing is the movie “baby mama” was on which is all about fertility and a surrogate. I think god is always watching and talking to us.


  27. christen says:

    I have a 7 month old son and had an IUD put in back in September. Well found out 2 weeks ago that I’m pregnant again! Doctor is stunned because the IUD was in place perfectly fine! She thinks hubby and I have great luck because I was told I would need fertility treatment to get pregnant but was on the pill when I got pregnant with my son and now I’m pregnant even though I had an IUD!
    with my first pregnancy before my ultrasound they warned me it could be twins because of my high hcg levels. No twins last time but they do run in my family.
    anyways this morning made some boiled eggs and found a double yolk! I’d like twins lol!

  28. Anntoinette A. says:

    I cracked an egg open with 2 yolks hopefully not sure what this means hopefully prosperity but I also wish I would be able yo have more children, I got a tubal ligation about 7yrs ago which I regret and been w my partner for over 3 yrs and would love twins….. my grandmother had 3 sets of twins!!!! What’s weird is I showed my cousin a picture of it and she had a dream the night before that she was pregnant with twins hmmmm guess we will see!! Prosperity and twins would start the New year perfectly 🙂

  29. Lacy says:

    I owned a bakery and craked thousands of eggs. There was a span of time I continually found double yolks, sometimes two a day. Shortly after I found out I was having twin girls. Superstition or not it was definitely funny coincidence.

  30. Denine says:

    I can’t honestly remember if this was before or after I had cracked 3 double yolk eggs from one carton (which I had never seen or heard of before that moment), but if it was before, my car had broken down (needed a new engine) and I lost my job 2 weeks later. I was going to take a vacation from work that same week. Got an unexpected one. Double yolks might be a bad omen for me. Have seen it a number of times since and my luck is no good. Will pay attention now.

  31. darren says:

    I got two double yolks today from one carton of eggs.

  32. Michelle says:

    My grandpa passed away the morning we cooked the egg with two yolks. So so crazy! I’m hoping someone I know is prego with twins.

  33. Mary says:

    I cracked 5 double yolk eggs in a row from my friends chickens last night. I have a 7 and 5 year old and a 10 month old. Hmmm. I wonder what this could mean as an omen?!?

  34. cassie says:

    I was making my best friends’ bridal shower cake and cracked an double yolk egg. I have a 3 month old baby so I hope the fertility thing isn’t for me 🙂 but of marriage one!

  35. veronica says:

    I just cracked an egg and got a double yolk; never in my life had that happened. I’m currently 14 weeks pregnant so yes now I believe it lol

  36. Christi says:

    I cracked 3 double yoke eggs in one day and I hope that means I going to be triple blessed in the money department…..

  37. Jenn says:

    my mother in law just texted me and said shes had 3 double yolked eggs in the past month, and my best friend just called and told me she had a dream that i was pregnant with twins…oh boy haha

  38. Nancy says:

    So very true. My son was wanting a second child so very much. I had never encountered an egg with two yolks until about two weeks ago. Found it so interesting that I snapped a pic and texted it to my son and daughter. Then began wondering what lore may be attached. Before I could find a few minutes to research it, my son called me about a week later to tell me they are pregnant! I am one happy grandma, this will be number five (or six if the twin thing is present). But there’s no twins on either side that I am aware of. Just happy for my son and daughter in law and looking forward to a new baby next summer.

  39. KayelAZ says:

    I can’t find any information on this: An egg that had a tiny tiny “complete shell egg” in the middle of the yolk. What are the odds of this, and how did this happen?????

  40. Hilary says:

    Hmmm, I’ve had three double yolk eggs from my chickens in the last two weeks! I’m still waiting on my first cycle since getting pregnant with my 12 month old, so maybe it’s coming….

    • Serwaa AKUFFO says:

      Lol,Hilary I have a 4 month old n open a double egg twice in a roll this week too,I hope is not it ohh,😃😂

  41. Maggie says:

    My husband cracked open a double yolk egg the day we found out I was pregnant!

  42. Sarah s. says:

    Mike and I both cracked open double yolk eggs out of the same carton a few months back, but it hasn’t meant anything for us, haha. Pretty much all of my friends seem to be getting pregnant though!
