Double yoke egg at day 9... - Page 2

post #11 of 17

We have got to stop posting at the exact same time! lol.  Well they say that if a chick does not hatch out on it's own then it was to weak to live. I have found this to be mostly true. However one of my best chickens was helped out of the egg. She was the only one that made it to hatch day and we decided to help her because she was definately not going to make it on her own. She wasn't even peeping anymore. We hatched her and even though it was like day 25 or something like that she was still a bit premie. She was strong though and we just kept visiting her every couple of minutes and she lived.

Can I raise chickens with turkeys?

You mean from chicks? I dont see why not. I would just make sure you separate them when they grow up. I raised a duckling with some chicks once and it was fine ...until they grew up a bit. The duck actually drowned one of the chicks in there water! It was actually a teeny bit funny. So yeah all should be fine as babies.

Isnt there a disease called blackhead or something?

Oh yes, I forgot about that. Good thing you remembered! In that case no, it would not be wise to rear them together because there is no guarantee that the chickens are not carriers. Good Call!

     I usually wait until the chick starts her pipping then if I see and stress or taking too long to break out then I intervene  and help the pipping a little at a time over a few days. If you have an egg candler, sounds like you do, candle the egg, look for movement  or even pipping sounds against your ear.

     I have had my share at failed pipping by me and have to bow down to mother nature and hope the chick is all right. Hit and Miss. Personally I  have never tried a double yolker to incubate before, at least not consciously.  I read that double yolkers will not be twins  anyways. I egg, 1 chick. I would love to know your end result though. Over twenty years with chickens and I am still learning. The neverending story.
