    Generally twins are a difficult hatching - not enough room in shell for two. You might put "hatching twin chicks" in the search box, for any advice. [​IMG]

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Hatching double yolk eggs is not for me I'm afraid as it generally does not have a good outcome, often there is not enough room for the chicks to develop correctly within the egg and they often quit developing. Please do search as drumstick said as there are threads on hatching double yolks.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow
