    I set eggs in my incubator ( the first time) on the 17th and candled them tonight again. The first time I candled them about 5 or 6 days in I did not notice anything unusual, tonight however I have 2 (the only cochins I have in there) that do not look like the rest. My other eggs I can see the eye and movement on one side of the egg. With these other two there is movement in the ENTIRE egg. Any ideas? I am praying it is not twins since I have heard they don't usually survive. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give.

    Some twins survive til hatch not all though, but you have to really help them out during hatch time. I saw a video on youtube of somebody helping twin chicks out....think it was called twin chicks?.....Good luck [​IMG]

    Thanks for your reply. Have you seen any day 10ish candling pics of twins. I'm not even sure they are twins, though I am running on the assumption they are since they appear so full already *sigh* I'm so not ready for that lol
