Twin Chicks

Every so often we have a chicken who lays double yolked eggs.

I have never gotten a double yolked egg from store bought eggs. Not sure why...

Anyway here is what a double yolked hard boiled egg looks like, kind of neat don't you think?

I am sure you know that the DNA that messages the formation of the chick is in the yolk, so what I have always wondered is whether double yolked eggs would develop into 2 chicks....

I looked it up and yes! double yolked eggs can produce 2 chicks, it is rare but it can happen.
Pretty cool, twin chicks.
