    This is my first one and it’s accidental. Now that I’m reading up on it I have seen where people purposely set double yolkers and not make it as far as these two babies. Has anyone else ever set a double yolker out there? Also if these two hatch does anyone have any nice twin names? If they do I wanna make a folder and a thread dedicated to them and my findings. Will they be identical? Will they be the same gender or different? How will they grow? Ect.

    I'm sure they will probably look alike but not necessarily the same sex. The thread I posted in a previous post, the twins that lived were a female and a male. The original poster in the thread I cited actually had 2 doubles. When the second double hatched I believe they were both fully formed but one had died and one survived.

    :welcome :frow This is very interesting. I hope they both make it but more often one doesn't, but we have hope. Good luck and have fun...

    I tried videoing but the whole egg was black so I had to take pictures but I took photos every tiny turn and labeled one chick 1(red) 2(blue) and just picture it turning. You can see two bodies and both were moving!
