If you left those eggs to become chickens, would two chickens come out of the same egg? or just one? or are they not viable?

I have been told that they are not viable, so you cannot breed a double yoker as such.

She's actually quite a young small hen and only just come into lay and the eggs themselves were not even large ones. Sadly I expect this is just young hen stuff, but it would be great if she continued this way - they made a fab breakfast for the family

Actually some are viable. Do a search for twin chickens on you tube as there are quite a few videos of 2 chickens hatching from a single egg.

We have been buying eggs of a young lad from down the road. Every Saturday he arrives with a dozen eggs, and we keep buying them from him... it costs more than going to the store but we'd rather give the kid some pocket change :) I feel somewhat "healthier" eating these eggs than store bought.

If anybody has egg recipes, send them this way - I'm bout sick of fried eggs, omelettes and scrambles eggs lol!

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Looks yummy-love double yolkers! I really miss having fresh eggs from "my girls". Try some deviled eggs, egg salad,make some custard. Another favorite is a fried egg sandwich-yolk hard,add ham or bacon-so good.

My husband has nearly finished my run (so I can evict them from my stable), he has slaved away in the freezing weather and rain - it has become rather an epic chore.

On the plus side, the next 3 eggs were also double yorkers!

We had two lovely runs at our house in the UK so I've been waiting patiently to get one built here - I think its going to have to be a lot stronger to keep local wildlife out - we get quite a few coyotes around and are a lot more exposed here too. I'm hoping we can get something built around the area of the barn where the dogs will keep vermin away but not sure yet what the plans are!!! So far all efforts are being put into turning a rustic farm barn into a more workable horse barn - I have to be grateful for what I get, dont want them to down tools and go on strike

Dont even start me on houses!!!
I have part finished 'everything' in this one and I'm desperate for the kitchen floor to get tiled as wood really doesnt work for us - two little dogs that think its OK to pee indoors from time to time - well use your imagination!!!
