But I just take double egg yolks as a general “fertility” omen. With a grain of salt, as with all omens.
So when I got this double yolk at the beginning of the month, my first thought was that my friend who has been trying to get pregnant will be pregnant soon (or was already).
But it wasn’t that. Or not JUST that anyway.
My period started that day. The first one since before I was pregnant with Anneliese (in 2009!)…if you don’t count the two days of spotting I had in between Anneliese and Joseph.
And a few days later, one of my girl friends got her first postpartum period, after 2.5 years. And then another friend (the one who is trying for baby 2) got hers back too.
So fertility. Lots of fertility. All signified by double egg yolks.
So tell me, have you had a double-yolk omen that was true?

I’m 16 too. I was just eating a boiled egg for breakfast because my mum made them the night before and I don’t always like the yolk but as I was eating it I came a cross two yolks in my boiled egg and I was think ”well you don’t see that eveyday” so I went to my bedroom to find out what it ment and when I came across this! I couldn’t believe it! I don’t want to have kids very young and my mum would kill me if I did, even though she wants grand kids? But I’ve always dreamt of having twins and would love it if I did when I’m older!
i cracked a double yolk egg yesterday for the first time in my life. today i was shocked to see there was another one! I hope it is a good sign
I was baking and cracked open a double yolk eggs. This isn’t the first te I’ve cracked twin eggs before. This seems to happen quite often for me. I had fraternal twin brother and sister. Hopeful this is a sign of good fortune!
Good luck, Kk! Hope you have great fortune. 🙂
I had a carton of eggs … I used 6 and 5/6 were double yolk… I bought a new carton so I could crack the rest cause I thought that was crazy and 10/12 were double yolk in one carton! The next day I found out I was pregnant. Kinda thinking it’s twins now?
All my package was with dubble yolks I smell something fishy here. its 2021 april in Sweden. I feel something has changed with eggs. I could be a conspiracy going on here.
Pretty sure it’s not a conspiracy. This happens a bunch naturally, and they may have set them aside but then you got the “set aside” ones 🙂
It’s 2022 now and we just cracked 9 out of 12 double eggs and one had 3 yokes in it. It felt weird, like something was just off about it. I am never that lucky and can’t have kids,.
Broke open the first eggs out of the carton and its double yokes. My gf and I are wondering if she could possibly be pregnant although she on her period. And the hardest part is I would love to have a child with her, but she doesn’t want children. This ain’t gonna go well if she’s prego..
Well I hope she’s not pregnant if she doesn’t want to have children. And I hope you get over wanting to have a child with her, if it’s not what she wants to do with her body…
I agree. Half of the jumbo eggs I crack have 2 yolks. Maybe thats why most recipes call for large eggs. Never had a double yoke in a large or extra large egg. Lots of them in jumbos. Seems pretty basic to me but then I’m just a farmer.
My boyfriend and I where in a cooking class last year and we both cracked our eggs into a cup and they where both double yolks im only 16 and i dont think im gonna get pregnate anytime soon but maybe it is a sign that when i do get pregnate i am going to have twins. I hope so cause i love kids.
Ooh! Let’s hope not any time soon 😉 but twins would be fun!
Wanting to prepare an egg for my sister,I cracked an egg and saw two yokes in it, but we both ate it, cos we both been craving for twins. Plz I want to knw which of us might be expecting a twins.
Good luck to both of you!
I was surprise cracked open 5eggs turned out they’re all double yolks which I never seen in my life. I called my grandmother to ask if this does happened’ and all she said was ‘hens twins means human twins. It’s a blessing, just put it in your prayer she said.
So first of all..I had 4months old baby and yes’ I test positive pregnancy and I still didn’t tell even my husband. I was thinking of surprising him as my Christmas gift????????. When I cracked open eggs within this week for the first time, I took a pic of it and sent it to husband and he was like have you ate it already and is this egg roll of mine a double yolks?I’m not eating it he said. But all I was thinking was that ‘I’m blessed to see this for the first time. Hopping for the Best(twins)????????
I’ll give you an update.
Please what’s the update? I am just curious. I had the same feeling
I cracked an 4 eggs with double eggyolk I am very curious what does it mean I hope this is a good omen. I want to be pregnant hopefully twins please in God’s will.
I’m a new mom and I recently came across a big dozen of eggs, while cooking my babe his food while I’m cracking the eggs I get 5 set of double yokes I heard it’s good luck and also since I’m a twin and I do want to have twins myself and my baby is 8 months rn so hopefully God will give me the desires of my heart to not only a mother of a beautiful daughter maybe twins I’ll be pregnant next I knew that it’s a sign that I showed my babe the double eggs I got and said it’s quite a few sets of twins
I cracked 6 eggs and all but one had double yolks, I found out a week later I was pregnant. Still don’t know if it’s twins or not.
I was making dinner this evening and I broke two eggs which had two yokes each.One had the two yokes joined together. I’m freaking out .I’m just in my teens. I dont want to believe these eggs represent my future kids
I have had thousands of eggs in my time today j cracked a double yolk egg for the first time in my life ! I have really tough pregnancies and two kids and we are done for this reason, however I’ve been told by 3 clairvoyants I will be having twins , I’m terrified now as I’ve been concerned I’m pregnant but test is negative today thank god ????????????
Hubby and I have been trying to get prego… last July of 2019 I got prego but miscarried in August… coming up in a yr…2 weeks ago I cracked an egg with double yolk.. lol then this week I cracked 2 eggs with double yolk.. but I started my period 2 days ago could this mean I may get prego soon with twins.. twins run big time in hubby family and some in mine. .. help
Hmmm I’ve had 3 eggs all double yolks this morning for breakfast. What could this mean ?
It all started with finding a twin potato when got some out to prepare for dinner. This morning I cracked an egg with double yolk and this afternoon two more eggs with double yolks. Is it an omen? I have been praying for twins. My mother-in-law is half of a fratenal twin. Her niece and nephew are fraternal twins. My sisters are identical twins so are 2 sets of second cousins on both my parents side. Then my dad has couple grand aunts that are twins and 3 who are triplets. Hmm…
Had loads of positive test just had 2 double eggs now bleeding gone doctors now test negative just had blood test just waiting still feel pregnant don’t no if was with twins still am or bad news ment to be good though so just waiting for news on test
So im 5 months pregnant and boiled eggs for supper and when i cracked the first two to eat they both had double yolks.Haven’t gone for scan yet wonder if I am having twins… 🙂
I pulled 3 eggs out of fridge all 3 had a double yolk. Wish I could post the picture on here. I am now curious.
I once had a dream that I was sitting on two large round eggs then I picked one up and ate it. A few days later I found out I was pregnant. Then this morning for the first time ever I cracked an egg into a frying pan and saw two yokes. I am 5 weeks pregnant. My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for a year. I definitely think it is a sign if you look at it right. I’m hoping it’s not a sign I’m having twins, though before I got pregnant my four year old told me she had been praying for God to put two babies in mamas tummy. We’ll see.
I was cooking breakfast Saturday at the restaurant and I not only had one double yolk or two or three… or even a dozen. I had 22 double yolk eggs!! I’d love this superstition to be true 🙂
Today making breakfast, I cracked an egg that had two yolks! I got freaked out so the first thing I did is google it lol, now reading all of these comments on the page I’m starting to think I might be pregnant:) me and my fiancÃ© have been trying for another baby for a while now:) who knows maybe I’m pregnant:) I’ll wait one more week to take a test!:)
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.
well,if you work in the industry of eggs,its to be expected..but if like me you do not,i have eggs all the time and in my 42 years,this a first,ever where i have had twin yolks in one and to me it was fascinating and now reading the superstition,I take it as a sign.
Well it was an omen to me since you’re on here trying to rain on people’s parade. First time I cracked a double yolk I got pregnant with twins shortly thereafter. So let people have their own assumptions on things and you keep yours to yourself!
Thanks Abigail. I buy jumbos by habit and get from 2 to 8 double yolks from a dozen. No omen. Just biology in another species.
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.
Oh my goodness, Jenny. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss.
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!
Okay so on Friday 04/21/17 I cracked an egg with 2 yolks in it. Yesterday cracked an egg in the morning with 2 yolks. Then later on that day cracked another egg for a cake and it had 2 yolks in it and now this morning cracked an egg for breakfast and same thing 2 yolks makes a total of four ðŸ™ƒðŸ™ƒðŸ™‚what does it mean I’m freaking out.
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?
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.
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!)
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.
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.
Need advise ðŸ˜±
My partner cracked not only 1 double yoked egg but two in one day? What does that mean.
So I was making breakfast this morning I made my two kids eggs first both of those were not double yolk and then when I made two eggs for myself both of them came out double yolked
I Busted A Double Yolk Egg , Tuesday At Nine . What Does That Mean ?
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;)
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.
i bought 2 crates of eggs and all are double yoke but yet to see any sign, in paris anyway
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!!
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!
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!
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
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.
So cool. Are you far enough to know if its one or two lol. Let me know
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 twinsðŸ‘¬.lol
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!
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..
I get two yolk in one boil egg what it mean
I cracked one egg today and found out double yolks what that means
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
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.!!!
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.
Impossible to know that they are double oak, who have time to check so many eggs
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.
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 🙂
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! ðŸ˜‰ I wonder if we should try for another lol
Good luck! 🙂
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 :).
I got 5 double yolks today. I’m scared to crack the rest of the carton lol.
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.
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.
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!
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 🙂
Prosperity and Twins sounds like a great 2015!
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.
That’s so cool!
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.
oh my goodness! That’s awful!
I got two double yolks today from one carton of eggs.
ooh. wonder what’s headed your way!
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.
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?!?
Oh goodness. hehe. Congratulations? 😉
Hubby said no more for a while. But I would love another. 🙂
I and hubby just ate a double yoke egg. Keeping my fingers cross it could be twin. That has always been my dream??.
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!
oh that’s so cool!! Best wishes to her and her fiancÃ©. And so sweet you get to make her cake.
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
Whoa, so cool Veronica! Congratulations!
I cracked 3 double yoke eggs in one day and I hope that means I going to be triple blessed in the money department…..
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
So did you find out if your if your pregant?
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.
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?????
WHAT? I need to see a picture of this. You took a picture, right?? Link me!
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2266323/Father-shell-shocked-cracks-open-gargantuan-egg–ANOTHER-egg-inside.html here you go… apparently it can happen if the chicken is stressed and doesn’t lay for a few days? So crazy!
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….
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,ðŸ˜ƒðŸ˜‚
My husband cracked open a double yolk egg the day we found out I was pregnant!
Whoa how cool!
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!
