    Yes but it is super rare to have them both survive. There is a person on BYC that has a youtube video of her survivors, it was very delicate! I don't remember the name but you can search it!

    Ah, you're like my daughter. Genetics are cool and things like this are cool but sometimes it's not a happy ending, I wish it were. You need to look at the handicap chicken contest. That will give you a smile!

    Rebecca is the person who hatched out the twin chicks. Here is the link. It's long, but it's also GREAT fun to read.
