    Just for info:

    The "yolk" is the yellow part on an egg. A "yoke" is something oxen are hitched to and which seem to break all the time on the "Oregon Trail" game...

    Anyway, it is possible to have them hatch, but highly unlikely. There is a video on youtube of a woman on this site who had twins hatch.

    Wow. Many people do not know the difference between the two. I was only attempting to help you learn the correct terminology. Now that you know it, it won't be hounded on again.

    Hopefully someone else can help you as I no longer feel the need.

    I saw a video once where a member successfully hatched out a double yolker. She had to help, but both chicks survived. It isn't recommended however. Without help, it's unlikely the chicks can get turned correctly to pip and zip.

    I have had 2 fully developed turkeys in one egg, but they died before hatching.

    There was an article in our newspaper a while back saying someone had a hen that set five eggs and hatched 10 chicks.
