    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    Wild, the fact that they survived the egg and then actually hatched. Then that the parents didn't push them out of the nest. What are the odds?

    This is so cool! This morning my husband made me an omlet from a double yolk egg. He showed me how the yolks looked "attached" and was calling it a "conjoined omlet." I wonder if I had incubated it, that's what I would have gotten?

    wow, that's insane! It's a shame they didn't make it, though I suppose like the guy in the article said, they probably wouldn't have lasted long any way.

    A cool but sad story. I live in White County Arkansas. The story is all over the news!

    Darn...If the farmer had gotten them help earlier, maybe they would've survived.
