    Two questions:

    • If you have a double yoke egg, and you incubated it, would you get two chicks or one REALLY BIG chicks?
    • What breed of chickens of yours lay the most double-yoked eggs?

    Post pictures of your eggs, and if possible answer my questions! Thanks!!!!!

    [​IMG]My Murray McMurray Cornish Roaster hen lays 2 to 3 doubles every month. Double eggs do not usually hatch. If there are two embryos they are crowded. If there is only one, the other part rots. Very few hatch.
