The other 2 normal size. Any tips. And yes they are twins. Have had quite a few people verify it.
I don't know about twin duck eggs but I know twin chicken eggs rarely make it and the chicks can often be deformed. Again, don't know if duck twins are more common or more successful but if not, then I would not have the kids get their hopes up. That seller should be informed she's got some hens laying double yolkers, so she can check before selling them. Good luck with the other 2!!
