Default Double Yoke Eggs!

So my fiance's mom has like 3 dozen chickens. They are laying eggs left and right and we took 2 dozen eggs home. She decided to cook me french toast this morning and there was this 1 egg that was pretty long, she cracks it and inside were 2 yokes. I've seen this a million times before, but this leads me to ask: If a rooster fertilizes an egg that has 2 yokes in it, will it hatch 2 chicks? I.E. can hens produce twins, and if so, can 2 "twins" from 1 chicken egg be "identical twins"?

I would speculate, not knowing any better at all...that the volume of an egg has been refined over millenia to produce a single chick. Survival rates being what they are, I imagine there is little room for messing with this. Even though they have two yokes, and therefore the nutrients to form, they would need nearly double the volume to grow and hatch.

Would be cool if they did though.

Can you imagine taking your kid to a petting zoo, and seeing her react in horror to the double-headed chick?

I think this is one of the strangest questions that I have ever seen asked on MT.

Only real comment I have is that it was a lot of fun chasing chickens and my uncles house when I was a kid.

2 YOLKS= 1 very well nourished chic,You can get a double bird but IIRC it has nothing to do with 2 yolks.
