    Just wondering if you've all seen this.

    Was candling yesterday.

    Two LARGE leghorn eggs had air sacs at both ends. I made the mistake of assuming they were dead. WRONG... both were alive and might have hatched this weekend.

    Anyone ever seen it?

    I'm closing my plugs so that my humidity will stay between 65 and 70!

    I had them open for a while early last evening because I couldn't get the humidity down. Now I'm fairly stable at about 69, but my temp is 100.6 hope that's not too high.

    Where they shipped eggs? Or could they possibly have double yolks in them?

    They were shipped but I don't know if they were double yolkers or not. Each egg just had one large, alive chick in them with two air sacs. One at each end.

    You know, on second thought, I may have had scrambled double yolk on one end and live chick on the other... is that possible?
