    I know it's a long shot but I've never had a double yolk egg before and I purchased eggs from someone for my incubator and there was one avaliable. I know the chances are very slim for this egg to make it all the way through and hatch but I decided to try. It is day 6 and I candled and I have two embryos. Does anyone have any [​IMG]experience with this?

    I'm not sure what that is. I've never had one like that

    It looks like a saddled air cell. Was the egg shipped? Looks like it has lost a lot of moisture too. (Maybe too much?)
    If you get it to lock down my (humble) opinion would be to let it hatch in an egg carton pointy side down.
    Best of luck;)
