    I have 2 double yolkers going into day 21 nowalong with 9 others that are due 24 hours later. I heard peeping coming from the bator. Do I pip them now or wait until they pip on their own? I candled going into lockdown on friday night and I am not sure that there are 2 chicks in the eggs, I saw some space. If there is only 1 chick will there be too much fluid/space in there? Oh, what to do [​IMG] .TIA [​IMG]

    Did you see the thread about the person with the double yolker earlier this year? There was a video of her helping.

    Quote:I did, but it was a while ago. I'm thinking I am going to pip them once I get everything done (Chocks fed, dishes done, laundry tended, kids acutally asleep, fire going etc., etc.) I just checked again and I didn't hear any more peeping [​IMG]

    I would just let nature take its course.

    OK, 1st egg 1 chick through the air cell and smushed up to the top of the egg. I hit a drop of blood so I stopped. 2nd egg not broken through and I can't see a beak. I do see in 1/2 of the air cell area a full, runny yolk so there is just 1 chick in there.
