    Yes I did see her thread and we watched her video also. So when this big double yolk popped out, I was sooooo excited. I tried to take a photo of the candling but it turned out real grainy. I will post it here anyway.

    I know you cant see too much here. Both Yolks are definitely fertile.

    Yes I know the picture was very grainy. I will candle again in a few days and try taking another picture. Hopefully it will turn out better. When I candled it last night, each yolk has its own spider web veins coming off of them. This is going to be so exciting (and challenging) for me. I am sooooooo excited.

    I am at day 9 with this double yolk egg. I just candled. This is so exciting!!!!! I hope they don't quit on me. Here is an updated photo of it. I am really nervous about this one. I have lots of movement inside the egg. I think this might even be a triple yolk with 3 babies inside. I have movement in the top of the egg (big end) and I have movement in the lower end (small end of the egg) and then in the center of the egg is still a lot more movement. Has anyone ever hatched out a triple yolk?????


    Here is a photo I took with my camera when I candled today.

    WOW!!! That is sooooo neat. I'll be watching. So do they consider fraternal or identical? Good Luck maybe a little prayer wouldn't hurt.[​IMG]
