    The chances of both chicks living & hatching in a double yoke egg is slight. If one of the dies, it will probably kill the other, so -----I would remove it. Put your efforts into making sure the others hatch.

    Keep it!! if it one dies, at least you wont be killing them both. Give them a chance at least.

    Thank you! I am leaning towards keeping them and seeing what happens.
    This is a issue I have not had to think of..
    I am pro life for all animals/people and think its in God's hands. But allso need to take into consideration that I have stepped in to hatch eggs and have allready disturbed the natural process. .

    I'm pro-life too. I think you should just wait and see what happens, if its God's Will, it will hatch!
