    How can you tell if there is 2 chicks in 1 egg, candled last night on day on day 12 and in 1 egg i could see 2 black shadows where as in the other eggs i only see 1. The egg is not very clear to candle as its dark but i definatelly see 2 shadows, i checked and double checked just to make sure i was seeing right.
    I am a bit concerned there might be 2 chicks in this 1 egg and i know from reading on here that its not a good thing as they don't normally make it.

    If there are 2 chicks in there, they will not hatch on their own. Just keep that in mind.
