    Where did you guys get your RIR eggs? I'd like to do some next! And I was just wondering about the double yolk eggs...does that mean you could have a twins come out? Is that possible in one little egg?

    Quote:More often than not double yolks have trouble developing and stall, some make it to term and are often one or both deformed and yes, they are twins. Assistance is needed for them to hatch, they're just too crammed in there. A BYCer documented the hatch and helping of two sets of twins, one set both survived, the other set one died, but all three are now a few months old and healthy.

    It happens that they live. Without help I doubt it would happen at all. I'm just giving it a shot because I have a hatch going.
