    I woke up this morning with 4 new chicks in the incubator but there was only 3 empty egg shells the chicks came out of. The only thing I can figure is that I have twins come from a double yolk egg. They are so cute and very active.

    I'm betting that two empty halfs are tucked into each other tightly so they look like only one.
