    I have a Buckeye hen that consistently lays double yolks. The eggs are almost twice the size of a normal egg. About the same size as my turkey eggs. What would happen if I incubated one?

    They CAN hatch, but you most likely will have to help during the hatch. A lot of times they quit during development though.
