    I know Im going to get slammed for this but here it goes anyways...

    I "stole" and egg from my MIL who has Red Sexlinks(wouldnt really call it stealing when they give them to everyone else)
    Well her 14 Red Sex Links are in with 2 of my roosters.. 1 Red Pyle Old English Game Bantam and 1 Mille Fleur d'Uccle
    I set the egg on the 12th and I candeled it tonight along with my Serama I just had shipped in this week (when they arrived the room was spinning so I couldnt see Air Cells that well.. turns out I have 3 detatched air cells)
    Well thats really nothing, people have babies hatch all the time... well here's the kicker...
    ITS A DOUBLE YOLKER and there is not 1 but 2 BABIES GROWING!!

    Congrats [​IMG] But you will probably have to help it out of the shell when it starts to hatch. There are threads here about that and a video on utube that shows it all. It can be done. [​IMG]

    Quote:I know I seen it! She had one good twin hatch and one bad where one chick died.. [​IMG]
    But I wonder if twin chicks hatch like twin babies are born a little early?
    I honestly didnt expect the egg to take because all the other double yolk eggs I have set, never took so I guess its off to reserch [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Congratulations!! [​IMG]

    You may have to help them out of their egg when hatch time comes. I doubt they can get out on their own. [​IMG]

    Know that these chicks will NOT hatch on their own and have a great chance of dying in the shell. I would think when the first one internally pips, maybe wait 24 hours and start assist....not sure though when you know to start the assisted hatch. Good Luck![​IMG]

    Okay so I did some research and came up with incubation time is the same as a single baby.. lockdown on day 18, hatch day between then...
    so if my math is correct Lockdown is September 30th and H-Day is October 3rd..
