Double yolk-er

This morning I collected our fourth duck egg when I let the birds out. It was even bigger and harder than the last few. I cleaned it and placed it in the fridge. Tonight when I was looking for something to make for dinner I noted that we had a lot of eggs from Frank and Rita's chickens and our ducks. So I decided to do a quiche. I cracked the chicken eggs first then added the duck egg last. When I cracked it open there was a surprise: two yolks!  If you look at the picture above you can see them side by side in the bowl, so much richer orange than the chicken yolks. When the quiche came out of the oven it was a beautiful pale orange color from that one duck egg!
