    Ive read some of the threads about 1 in a billion chance. Im going to try anyway. The incubator is currently on day 18. The egg is so big its having difficulty spinning in the Mini Advance Brinsea. Ive been turning it by hand from time to time. I have been candling and all 7 eggs appear to be fertilized. And doing well.
    wish me luck![​IMG]

    Let us know how it goes. I put a double yolk in on Sunday, but I hear they hardly ever make it. [​IMG]

    how exciting!! I'll be following! You should post pics when you candle! :)
     
  6. A very interesting (and useful) youtube video by someone who helped a "double yoke" hatching (both of these chicks survived).

    Ok the incubator is on day 11. All seven eggs are alive and kicking when candled. Here are some pics of the double yoke egg. Hopefully a video as well if I can get it to upload.[​IMG][/IMG]
