    Well, my giant egg I had in the incubator came up with a blood ring, and died yesterday. Today

    I broke it open and found two yolks, one chick, and alot of mess. Since there was two yolks in the

    egg, is it somhow a good thing this chick died? What would've happened at hatch with an
    extra yolk smooshed up against the little guy? The other yolk was not a chick, By the way.
    it was not growing. Just a big yolk. [​IMG]

    Just curious!

    Thanks:)

    Often, the double yolkers produce two chicks... They rarely hatch, however, because they have nothing solid to push against when trying to hatch, and cannot maneuver themselves to zip the egg... On YouTube, look up hatching twin chicks... Should be the first video.... [​IMG]

    Oooh! I seen those videos. So interesting, but I don't think I could do it. I'd be to afraid

    of hurting them! [​IMG]
