    I copied and pasted the link. It worked that way!

    I hate that they couldn't save the birds!

    Quote:thats something totally different, those came from one yolk that split to late into twins. If a egg splits to late into the development in two , it wont completely seperate and conjoined twins happen. if the eggs split uneven, such as 40% and 60% parasitic twins happn.

    I don't get how it's different. Not arguing just don't get it. Isn't a double yolk a double yolk? It's still in one eggshell right?

    I think it's interesting that they would say they came from a double yolker. I disagree also. I would think that double yolker chicks would be fraternal. Any co-joined twins are always identical.

    These had to have split early during development.
