This morning I cracked a breakfast egg and found twin yolks inside. If this egg was brought up to hatching, would it have twin chicks???

Its very possible if both yolks got fertilized.
Happens ever so often with snake breeding.

My wife had a Americana hen that laid a double yoke about twice a week. It was a real pretty egg kind of a mint green shell in color & a little larger in size. Sadly to say that one is gone now but the two other Americana's she has lay double yokes occasionally.
