    Excuse me for being ignorant, but I'd just thought I'd ask. Can you incubate a double yoker? Could you really get two chicks from one egg? This question has been bugging me for a while, and I just wondered if anyone's done it before?

    i am incubating one right now it is possible to get two chicks but it is rare usually one dies or niether make they have to be helped out of the shell though for any to survive though there isnt enough room inside the egg for the chciks to position themselves
