How to tell double yolk quail eggs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I performed a search on this forum and didn't find what I was looking for. I'm wondering how I can tell which of my quail eggs have double yolks? When I performed the search, some people mentioned they can just look at the eggs and tell. Others say they candle the eggs but when I candle the eggs, I can't see the yolk.

I got an egg that is 16g and one that is 18g. The egg is kinda wide so I know that is one sign that it's possibly double yolk. When I candle, I can't see two yolks. Even for regular sized eggs, I can't see the yolk. Any information is greatly appreciated!

Robbies birds wont lay single yolk eggs over 17g so if its bigger than 17 its most likely a double yolk. If it isnt uniformly shaped you dont want to incubate it regardless.

Thanks for the information dc3085! I will only keep eggs between 14-17g with regular shape for incubation purposes.
