    If it's a double yolker, then i believe thay are twins!! I have a double yolker in the bator right now too, but i think it quit early. [​IMG]

    Don't get your hopes up. Nature dictates that these chicks most likely will not reach full development and will not hatch unassisted.[​IMG]

    I have never hatched one in the incubator but I did have a broody hen hatch a set of twins. It is highly unlikely they will hatch but you never know. fingers crossed. Good luck to you.

    i saw a vid on the internets showing someone who helped and they made it out fine! i helped my chick out of h(unclassified gender) egg and (s)he is doing great. dont worry helping isnt bad but dont do it if they can make it out on their own
