    That looks like two peck marks from the same chick. It would be hard for their heads to be that close together.

    Twins are very, very rare.

    They are rare, but guess what it was twins. They hatched and are doing well.

    Thanks this time went so much smoother than the last time the last twins took three days to hatch and l had to help a lot wich l do not like doing but l will when they need me. These ones were out in two hours.
    I think that they are Identical twins

    Congratulations. Very fortunate for the chicks that they didn't need assistance.
    The first time it happened, did the chicks develop well? What was their size and vigor like as they matured compared to the other birds from the same hatch?
