    Looking at the darkness and how full your egg looks I would GUESS about day 14. Can you see movement?

    No I have not tried to hatch a double yolk egg. It can be done but it's risky, if you type hatching double yolk in the search box above are threads all about it.

    I don't think so. You can find out for sure by looking at the charts on the sex linked information thread.

    [​IMG] so happy it's going well. Do you have your incubator yet?

    I saw a video of an assisted double yoker hatch. It was mentioned in the video that they can not hatch on their own because there is not enough room in the egg for the heads to turn so they can pip. I will look for the video.
