Ok this is my second set of twins from the same duck Big Momma. She lays a big egg every 6 weeks or so and yes it is twins. There is two yokes so me and my friend thought they might make it this time but it didn't happen . The first set stayed small only about half an inch. But these guys kept growing while I ket my eyes on them. Is there any way I can help the next egg of twins make it.

@caesargirl - might be able to answer your question.  

 

Since you created this thread, you can edit the name of it.  Please add "Graphic Photo" to the name.

 

Thanks!

Love my family...8 ducks, 4 cats, 2 dogs, a boyfriend, grown-up son & BYC lamps!

I'm sorry the littles didn't make it. As much as I hate to say it, there's nothing you can do to help. Successfully hatching twins is up to nature alone. Many people who incubate or candle their birds eggs actually don't even allow doubles to incubate. It's not unheard of, just not common.
(Side note, love the name Big Momma! I have a jumbo pekin with the same name)
