Mum beats odds in the trillions after cracking open 14 double-yolker eggs
A mum beat odds in the trillions after cracking open 14 double-yolk eggs.
Emma Henry and her family were left jaw-dropped by their kitchen discovery while making a family breakfast at their home in Tonbridge, Kent.
The mum had stopped off at a small Tesco on Saturday night, July 13, and bought 18 eggs in three boxes of six.
But the family had no idea there was more than meets the eye to the ordinary looking free-range medium eggs.
Emma told Kent Live : "On Saturday evening we stopped off at Tesco in Southborough, the little one because we wanted to get the ingredients for a full cooked breakfast.
"They had some eggs that were reduced on special offer so we bought loads. There are five of us so we get through a lot of eggs.
"On Sunday morning, Max said he wanted to come and help cook breakfast
"So I cracked one egg which is normal, then I cracked another one and then went ‘oh my god it’s a double yolker’ and said to Max to come and look because they’re really unusual.
"Then we cracked the next one and it was the same and then the next one and then the next one and it just went on and on.
"Three boxes of eggs, so 18 eggs all together. At one point I was like we have to stop cracking these eggs we’re never going to use them all.
"Then my son Max persuaded me to carry on in the interest of scientific experiment."
The British Egg Information Service says 1/1000 eggs on average is double-yolked – meaning the chance of finding four in a row stands at a trillion-to-one.
However, according to the BBC, the fact double yolked eggs tend to come in clusters anyway, while the chance of finding a first double-yolk stands at one in a thousand, the chance of finding a second one consecutively is 1/100.
