Not really, an egg with three yolks is the equivalent of monozygous triplets. Possible theoretically, although i think you have a better chance at winning the lottery than seeing one.

Post by bonniebarb55 » Tue Oct 17, 2006 9:41 pm

I have had a lot of double yolk eggs but today I was shocked to see 4 little yolks in one egg! Is that rare?

how about if we dye the food of the chicken and feed the chickens with it, does the result of this, is the egg yolk will obtain the color of the dye that was being used???? sorry... lousy english.

colorless yolk?!

Post by honeev » Thu Nov 09, 2006 12:19 am

actually ive read about that... it says that yolk color is affected with wat the hen has been eating....

if diet is rich in yellow or orange pigments then it affects yolk color ... so a colorless diet can lead to a lighter hue (other says almost colorless 8) )... altho i have not tried it (ive no chicken to feed i ate them harharhar) but its said that some farmers do feed chicken wid artificial pigments to improve yolk color... but that may not be a good practice...

...but the color will be in yellow-orange range, can be lighter or darker, but could not be into another color range ;)

Feeding dye wont at all gonna work, but feding colored pigment may work.
