    The double yolk eggs don't work out. There isn't enough room for 2 birds to develop.

    Sure, they will start to develop but eventually they will die. It isn't the same as twins growing in an expandable uterus. If its your goal to kill two goslings in one egg then by all mean keep incubating double yolk eggs
