    I have two hens that lay 20-22g eggs just about every other day. If you crack that open I would almost bet ya a Mearns quail that its a double yolk. I have tried to incubate 9 so far and never had one hatch. My own personal opinion is the yolks come down too close together and the shell department tries to wrap em both at the same time.
