Well think of the egg as a huge single cell and the egg's yolk is the nucleus. So if the egg has two yolks that means it has two nuclei. Which is pretty rare in any cell.

Two nuclei in an enclosed single cell such as the egg is most likely caused by mutation or the cell is in the middle of dividing during the development of the fetus (the chick).

Hope that helps.

I've eaten an egg that have two eggyolk last year... Since it is rare , guess I'm lucky to witness it with my own eyes...(I was alone at the kitchen at the time)

So Andrew, since you get the chance to see them would you be kind enough to click a photo of one and post it here :wink:
