    id say 8/10 xl eggs i buy have a double yolk

    love it,. 1 yolk for each end of my bacon n egg baguette

    plenty brown sauce yum

    don't think about it hon or you wont be able to eat eggs anymore lol

    Most double yoked eggs will not hatch because there will not be enough space in the egg for the chicks to grow. When this does happen the chicks commonly die because they haven’t developed enough to live outside of the egg. Siamese chicks could happen but that would be rarer then regular twin chicks. Plus I highly doubt that siamese chicks would even be able to peck out of their shell and survive for any extended period of time.

    it wont hurt lol

    she must be thinking of the chicks in human terms

    ooohhh we have baby chicks a few days old... no twins tho

    We once had a 6 pack of large eggs and all of them were double yolks, i was like wttffff

    I think they would be identical twins if they were to hatch... if the mother hen were to lay 2 eggs at the same time then they would be twins..:-D
