    That's true, too... just like trying to hatch bantams and lf together... plus it's harder to regulate proper humidity for both in same bator...

    X2 on the double yolkers... I won't ever set those...

    If both develop, they run out of room at the end... plus only one ends up in position for hatching, the other suffocates... it is extremely rare that even one survives and *usually* it has health issues...

    I dunno if there's ever been a successful hatch of twins... to me, it is just not worth the risk of putting any life through that...

    Many try just for the challenge or the excitement, but I'm just not comfortable with the odds... Calls are difficult enough...

    Last lockdown of 2015 underway...8 eggs from my fancy EEs. I popped them in a Brinsea 20 just for fun. Should be hatching on the 28th!
