An Aldi shopper stole the grease he found in a packet of eggs he had bought at the supermarket.
Shopper discovered something that was 1 chance at 720 million, and couldn’t believe his luck.
Christine Hill, from Allerton, went shopping at her local Alde on the weekends and picked up a packet of eggs in her accessories.
When he arrived at the egg house to make cracked eggs, he discovered a “double yolker …”.
As he continued to break his eggs, he was surprised to learn that all six eggs in the box had double yolks.
Christine posted about her search on Twitter, saying: “6 double yolkers out of a box of 6 eggs.
“What’s his clicking opportunity?”
Address to ECHO Her purchase came as a surprise to Christine, who picked up the eggs yesterday Getty Images The ALDI branch, said: “The first time you think ‘Oh look, a double yolk’, and don’t think too much of it.
“And then when the second one was double, you just thought it was a coincidence, but on the third side, my husband and I started joking that the next one would be the same.”
“And then it was. And so on until we broke the whole box and they all doubled. It was definitely funny and amazing.”
“I pulled it out and it seems to be more with fewer chickens and it may be a sign of an inexperienced layer, but if it’s true I don’t know.”
One person commented on Christine’s post on the basis of 1 out of 729 million odds that with 1 in 30 odds, more than six, it turned out to be a surprisingly small opportunity.
The man suggested that Christine “get some lottery numbers tonight.” “While the British Egg Information Service’s advice suggests a double yolk, while surprisingly low, it is likely to come in large numbers.
On their website, the British Egg Information Service says: “Double yolker (eggs) that contain small chickens whose hormone system is still developing naturally.
“It is very rare for an egg to be ‘double yolk’ and, although we cannot be specific, the example of double yolk is considered to be less than 0.1 double.
“However, because all the chickens in the herd are the same age, it is not uncommon to find more than one double yolk in a box.”
