    I have a hen that always lays a double yoker, every other day. It's huge, 'bout 1.5 x the size of my runner duck eggs.

    Thought I'd put one in bator just to see what happens. Well day 10 and they both are growing and moving around. hatch date Oct 2.

    Fingers crossed they both make it. I'm so excited at the chance of maybe hatching twins..

    They have some Siamese chicks at the Curiosity Shop in Seattle (port) It says they didnt live that long. I wonder if they have ever gotten on to live past chick-hood? I'll be watching to see if you get these hatched [​IMG] I wonder if they will be connected like the ones at that store.

    Most don't survive as they grow in the shell, they crowd each other unlike other animals whose bellies expand with multiples. I hope yours do!!!
