    I am incubating chicken eggs right now, and candled them last night (about 7 days along) and i noticed that one egg had two embryos swimmin' around...is there any way it will hatch? I doubt it, but just wanted to see if anyone else has had the same thing happen...thank!
     
  2. There is someone here who hatched out a twin egg...
    They took a vid of it too, it's on youtube...

    Would love to see if this works. I often wonder if the large eggs I put in the bator will be double babies.
