    I'm new to hatching so I don't have a clue what to do at this point :( But I did read on the eggtopsy thread that a chick can pip through a vein and bleed to death. The only thing I can think of is buying the first aid powder that stops bleeding and applying it to the vein if you can identify the source of the bleed? Good luck I hope they are both ok.

    Hooray, hope the other is ok too! I had twins myself, I know there are so many potential complications (I'm sure same is true for chickens!)

    How do you know there's two in there? When is it due? Why did you pip it for them?


    There's an awesome video of a lady who assisted her twin chickens in hatching. You have to be very careful though- if you assist before they're ready, it will kill them.

    I saw two embryos its larger heavier and it's due today I pipped for them because everyone said they heard it peeping and turns out it could not get to the shell it was stuck between the membrains

    I have a huge egg, with twins, I don't plan on helping when it is their turn to hatch. I am hoping the egg is large enough as they grow there will be room. My only concern is one embryo is on top of the other like a totum pole. I hope this is okay. pic's soon.

    It's fine they will move as they grow my twins are doing ok lots of blood but they are surviving since the blood is shared between both

    cute!
    My hen always lays large eggs so I didn't expect this one to be a double.
