Couple find a DOZEN double yolked eggs in one box
Couple Ken and Carolyn Bannister were left shell-shocked when they discovered a dozen double yolker eggs in one box - at odds of a quintillion-toone.
It was no yolk when Mr and Mrs Bannister set about making an omelette after picking the eggs up from their local Morrisons earlier this month.
But the eggcitement soon began when they cracked five in a row to find they all had two yolks.
“I just couldn’t believe my eyes,” said Mr Bannister, 65. “I had heard that it was rare but had a funny feeling that more in the box might be double yolkers too.”
A few days later Mrs Bannister hard-boiled another four for a salad and saw double again.
“That was it then, we were obsessed,” said Mr Bannister.

“We knew it was pretty strange and we looked it up and found a story about six from the same box at odds of a trillion-to-one, so we wondered what it would be for nine.”
Last Friday, Mr Bannister, poised with his video camera, captured his wife cracking the final three eggs.
He told Get Surrey: “Low and behold, they were all doubles too.
“Things are definitely cheaper by the dozen.”
It is thought the odds of finding a box of 12 double yolk eggs is a quintillion-to-one - the same as winning the lottery three times.
Mr and Mrs Bannister, from Ash Green, will be keeping the hard-boiled specimens for as long as possible, “for anyone who wants to take a look”.
“We do not play the lottery as a rule, but something like this makes you wonder if you should,” said Mr Bannister.
