    i don't know the percentage of double eggs that make it to be chicks so has it ever happened to you Ware 1 egg turned into 2 chicks (like when you scramble eggs and theres a double yoke only they both developed) and I'm rather wondering as to how often this happens, i know its rare and chicks often don't mack it out alive but there has to be someone on here that has had it happen. and if you could say the breed and age of hen to help further the knowledge of how it happens. oh and pics are always welcome especially when there still in the egg!
