The hen has just popped out two yolks from her ovaries at the same time and they both got caught in the same egg making process. If both yolks in the egg had been fertilised by a rooster, beforehand, and if it had been incubated, two chicks might have been the result. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Mable Garrett New You 2021-07-22T11:22:45+01:00Added an answer on July 22, 2021 at 11:22 am It means two egg yolks got enclosed in one shell. It’s not at all a rare occurrence. We used to be delighted to get them like that. Unfortunately, most hatcheries cull them out and either throw them away save them for their own families to eat. They do not usually make viable chicks as the size and contents of the double yolk does not support the hatching of two chicks. It just doesn’t do well. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
