Southport mum discovers 5 double yolks in a box of just 6 Morrison’s eggs

Cath Regan, who is owner/manager of Pine Pixies Preschools in Formby, got a nice surprise as she was about of make an omelette.

5 free-range eggs out of Cath’s box of 6 turned out to hold double yolks.

That’s 11 yolks for the price of 6 eggs.

What are the odds for finding double yolk eggs?

The Daily Mail reported:

‘In normal circumstances, the likelihood of finding just one such egg in a box is about one in 1,000, according to the British Egg Information Service (BEIS). Consequently, the equation for finding six would theoretically be 1,000 to the power of six, which equates to an American quintillion – 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (18 zeros).’

Cath said:

 “In all my years I have never seen anything like this. Pat, my husband, also used to keep poultry and we have never had more than one double yolk at a time.  Well done Morrison's.“
