Hi

I’m new to the forum so not sure how to post a video..

I’ve got 7 eggs incubating currently (first time I’ve done this) and one of the eggs appears to have two embryos inside. What’s the chance of that one hatching? What can I do to make sure that they’re both safe?
If there’s a way to upload a video I’d really appreciate some advice!

thanks!

Looks like a normal healthy single embryo to me. If you watch it move you'll see it moves in a rocking motion or like a seesaw. Where one side moves up as the other goes down. Not independent of each other. This is a picture of a duckling I hatched on Easter. It was a single and the best picture I could find of an embryo with two dark spots (head and abdomen).
