You know it’s destined to be a great day when you crack an egg to discover two golden yolks to dunk soldiers into.

So you can imagine our excitement when we heard Morrisons is selling packs of rare double yolk eggs to celebrate Easter.

According to the supermarket chain, there’s a one-in-a-thousand chance of cracking a double-yolked egg for breakfast. In fact, younger chickens are statistically more likely to hatch double yolks – usually in their first batch of eggs.
