    Well I'm new to incubation, but I thought I would give it a try and with my first batch I had 100% fertility only 2 early deaths (out of 38 eggs). Now the parent stock are my own pet chickens, so I'm keeping my girls going. I found this today a double yolk egg, well as an experiment I'll try it.

    This will be awfully egg-citing

    I had a hen hatch two chicks out of one egg last summer. It was unexpected! If I hadn't counted the eggs myself I would not have believed it. One twin is doing great. The other was taken by a hawk:(
