Twin chicks? - Page 2

post #11 of 13

I watched a video of someone helping out twin chicks. They became a hen and rooster they said when they grew up.

Be prepared to assist with the hatch.  There is an excellent article in the learning center.  With twins, neither one of them may be able to get into position to pip properly.  So, you'll need to monitor for first internal pip, and then decide how to proceed from there.

My twins were beautiful,good size plenty of egg room,however I hadn't heard nothing all last night and this am I popped a tiny hole in the air sac...they were backwards sad.png
I think they drowned themselves ,breach but just perfect sad.png
I will never try twins again.i set them to incubate before I learned how hard it was to bring to hatch sad.png
Super bummed
