Double yolk eggs are usually a rarity, but Morrisons has launched packs of double yolk eggs - just in time for the Easter period.

One in a 1,000 chance

Double yolk eggs are extremely rare, due to only a certain number of chickens being able to produce them. There is normally just a one in 1,000 chance of finding one.

Young chickens more frequently produce double yolks, since they are in the early days of egg production.

A chicken will usually be between 20-28 weeks old in order to hatch these eggs, laying a double yolker once every 100 lays.

But those who enjoy double yolk eggs can now get their hands on them, as Morrisons are selling packs of four for £1.50 per pack.
