    Wow! dont hear it that often, but yes some people have even four yolks!. But trying to hatch to it , its not a good chance. How far are they in the incubator? Good luck who knows if you got three!

    i know that twins have been hatched with human asistants, but the cances are not good, they will need assistance hatching by an expert, but its most likely that the embros will die before they hatch.

    They have a 50/50 chance of making it I think, just don't let the humid get to high and you most likely with have to help them hatch, good luck keep us updated.
