    Sorry, but double yolkers, if they even develop, rare live to hatch. Its not a good idea to incubate one. Let me find you a link...

    I am excited to see how the dbl yolker turns out. You never know! In horses Twins very uncommonly live but there have been several born this year with healthy weight.
    Good Luck.
