Now I went and did something real stupid. So this is going to be interesting. My white plymouth rocks have been in the breeding pen for almost a month now. I put 1 of their eggs in the bator on Sept 15, 1 on the 16, 1 on the 17, a double yolk on the 18, and 2 on the 20.

hahahahaha should not have done that. Now I am due to hatch out this tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, and sunday.

anyone else ever make the same mistake????

Just one warning:

Not to upset you but a double yolker won't hatch (there could be exceptions, I'm not here to argue). They both compete for the nutrition and neither has the will/ability to sacrifice itself for the other. So you may have a day off because of that one. Other than that, good luck on the hatch!

Chuckle. I'm like that and I'm not a guy - the "oh look at this egg" problem.

Candle the double yolker - if they are still viable they will REQUIRE assistance to hatch, they cannot hatch by themselves - there's not enough room to turn.
