That is interesting so thank you for that. It would seem cruel then to hatch them if so many bad things could happen. I was just curious and don't have a rooster so no chance of that but now I know and I appreciate it!
Yes, it can be... but most that hatch do so without the owner realizing there are two yolks. Those can be the funniest stories... "I know she was sitting on four eggs and yet.... five chicks?!" ;)
Wow; I bet so. Well am getting a few double yokes lately is what has me thinking about it but of course they can't have chicks in them regardless.

Thanks for stopping by; I hope we both find out!
You are right to be confused it is yolk, but for some reason it is called yoke too; especially with the double; but perhaps I should have said double yolk; but either is correct. I think. lol
Thank you Jackie, you have return peace to my mind. wouldn't bother me anymore that my learning better English is in vain …. As far as double-yolk eggs fertilized, it happen in some cases in my native country, that some chicks had 2 heads or 4 legs
Oh how horrible; I suppose some would sell them to Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum; if they lived. I would never want to see that. Would be pitiful. I have not even eaten one of the eggs yet. Maybe tomorrow. There are two left.
It's possible its use for a cojoined jolk derives from this nuance of meaning: put a yoke on (a pair of animals); couple or attach with or to a yoke. Otherwise the yoke is the part of a hitched team of work animals that connects them together.
Yet if you do a search on double yoke you will find it as well as double yolk.
