    it a twin or double yolk egg? I have one silkie egg that is confusing me. I candle it and i can see dark blobs moving from two places. could it be two ends of the same chick (ie head and feet) or is it two chicks. It appears to me...the first time complete novice...as two chicks...but could it just be the one?

    What day are you on? What are you using to candle? Is the egg bigger than normal?

    Perhaps you are seeing a shadow of the chick and the shadow off the egg yolk?
