Egg with 2 bulls-eyes?

  1. Hi!
    I was just cracking some eggs to make an omelet for lunch and found an egg with 1 yolk 2 bulls-eyes (tried to get pic but didn't work).
    Is that common? I'd never noticed it before.
    What would happen if an egg with 2 bulls-eyes was incubated? Twins?

    I had one of those once but thought I must be seeing things.

    Don't know if it would hatch at all. Doesn't the single chick need all that yolk?
     
  4. I probably wouldn't have noticed it except I was separating these eggs (this omelet will be 2 whole eggs and 10 whites).

    Thought I was seeing things, too.

    I don't *think* 2 chicks could develop and I'm *pretty sure* they couldn't hatch, but don't know for sure. Maybe someone knows...
