Morrisons launches packs of rare double yolker eggs for £1.50

(Picture: Eliza Fitzgibbon/Morrisons)Morrisons has launched double yolker eggs just in time for Easter, giving you extra to dip your soldiers into.
Double yolk eggs are incredibly rare – with a one in 1,000 chance of finding one.
This is due to only a certain number of chickens being able to produce them.
Double yolks happen more frequently in young chickens, when they’re in the early days of egg production. So a chicken will usually be around 20-28 years old to hatch them.
These chickens produce a double yolker once every 100 lays.

The participating stores include Aldershot, Bradford Enterprise 5, Camden Town, Chingford, Erith, Failsworth, Harrow, Maidstone, Plymstock, Preston Riversway, and Redditch.
The eggs are priced at £1.50 a pack – which is pretty good considering a large pack of six normal eggs costs 90p.
Robert Hoffman, egg buyer at Morrisons said: ‘You know it’s a lucky day, when you crack open an egg and find it has two yolks.
‘So we wanted to bring egg-lovers extra luck by offering a four pack of double yolk eggs. We hope they bring customers some good fortune this Easter.’

So, if you want to get your hands on one, you’ll have to act fast.
Happy egg hunting!
