    Someone asked me in a double yolked egg would hatch. I didn't know, also I wondered if it did would it be twins. Anyone know?

    I think this qualifies as one of the most asked questions in the incubation topic....

    A quick search would have answered your question (use the search feature at the top of the page)

    Yes, very rarely and with a lot of good luck and help.

    and


    Yes, fraternal, possibly even sired by two different roos.

    See the book "The Pigeon" by Wendell Levi, Page 296, Paragraphs 444 and 445.
    I once got 17 chicks from 16 eggs and that was before I was old and semi senile and could still count with some degree of accuracy
