    I just got 16 eggs for my incubator that holds 15 eggs. One of the 2 I am torn between is a double Yolker and the other one has a small sealed crack running down the side. What is more likely to hatch and what one should I use? Your opinions are helpful please reply quickly as I am putting eggs in right now.

    Personally for me I would put the cracked one in rather than the double yolk egg. Although it's not unheard of for double yolk eggs to hatch there is more chance of the cracked egg hatching.

    Good luck with your hatch :fl

    I am just rolling dice and waiting on the Jue-Jue bones and magic 8 ball to give me the right answer!

    So far they all say "the future is grim".........on the double yolk and cracked egg.
