As I understand it, the double-yolk thing is a genetic tendency that runs in some flocks. Young hens are also more likely to lay eggs with a double yolk than older ones. So if you had a box with several double-yolkers in it is probably from a fairly young flock of hens with a genetic predisposition.
I don't know whether certain breeds of chicken are more likely to have that genetic predisposition though, so can't tell you whether avoiding certain colour eggs will lessen the chance of getting a double yolk!
Personally I love double-yolks, it's like getting 2 eggs for the price of one
