Double Yolk = Twin Chicks?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Have a friend that has a white leghorn that lays really large eggs, which have double yolks.  So my question is this - as a fertile egg, will it hatch and will there be one or two chicks?  Just wondered! Thanks.....Janet

It is possible to incubate it and get two chicks.. but they will have difficulty hatching (often needed assistance) and you may loose one or both chicks in the process.

Guess what... chicken butt!

X 2  Rarely do such eggs hatch naturally.

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.

I have zero chicken willpower.
