    I've read where people have tried to hatch double yolkers. Most of the time the chicks die in the egg. Their isn't enough room for two chicks. If they do hatch, they normally die because they are tiny or very weak.

    Im no expert but i have read that double yolkers will start to develop but never fully mature and hatch. I guess theres not enoughf room. I've also read that if you incubate smaller pullet eggs you would recieve very low hatch rates and the ones that do make it would just end up being smaller chickens. Kinda Like the runt of the litter. [​IMG] If you decided to try please us updated on what happens! -Dom

    Thanks everyone [​IMG] I was just wondering because I got my first double-yolk today and it just got me thinking.

    So, if you hatch pullet eggs, the chickens will just never be full size? [​IMG]
