    Well, from what I understand, it's very uncommon for twins to hatch from an egg. Not impossible though. You can wait and see.....really there's not much you can do.

    Maybe others will come around with some better news for you.......

    Best of luck!

    If they do survive the 28 days you will have to be prepared to help them hatch, there is a video of a member on here succesfully helping
    an egg which ahd twins. Here is htel link you could maybe send her a message on there for any tips.

    Like Quail said, be ready to help. Twins will not likely escape the egg alive without aid. Start reading up now about how to help a chick hatch.

    Really interesting Youtube video, Quail. I hoped they both survived and had no long-term effects. They certainly looked premature and not like "full-term" babies.
    Fascinating experiment, but I would not try it myself.

    Good luck duckfarmer. Let us know how they turn out.
