Morrisons is selling packs of double yolk eggs at a bargain price
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.
However, the rarity of these eggs means there are only 1,000 boxes available nationwide.
The double yolk eggs are being sold in 11 selected participating stores, including:
