    Has anyone ever hatched a double yolk egg and had 2 chicks come out?

    Yup. There is a really cool video on youtube of a lady who did 2 double yolkers in one hatch. Only 3 survived.

    Most people avoid doing it, because it is near impossible. They dont want to start a chick growing that is pretty much doomed. ya know?

    I saw that video. I sat there the whole time just spell-bound. I kept talking at it, telling her to just wait, wait, let it come out on it's own! But she must have known what she was doing, cause the chicks were fine. The one that didn't make it, was deformed and wouldn't have lived anyway.
