60 James Marie eggs a no hatch after 22 days...I'm at a loss..half the eggs were clear and the other half were partially developed..this is not a James Marie farm bash party (he is a good man) I'm sure it was part shipping and part my fault...but in all my years of hatching quail...this was my first fully loaded flop...heck I even hatched blue scale quail in a still air once..now I have a Brisnea 20 advance🙁

I'm so sorry.  I know the frustration.  I bought a replacement incubator to one we broke.  It was an incuview.  So far, 4 hatches that were put in to that bator - all duds.  It's ok for the first 18 days, but no good at hatching.

 

I hope you figure out what went wrong.....

Mom to a BEAUTIFUL little girl, 1 dog, 2 cats, LOTS of fish and an ever growing chicken flock.  Laying hens - 3 RIR, 3 BSL, 3 EE, 2 Delaware, 2 BR and 1 backyard EE mix.  6 wk old babies - 1 NHR, 1 BO (Maybe a Roo), 1 Dominique, 1 BA, 5 EE girls, and 1 EE boy.  Breeding silkies 3 white hens, 1 blue/grey hen, 1 black roo.  Tiny chicks too many to count.

That's a shame, I hate to hear about 0% hatches.

Doesn't James Marie Farms offer a 50/50 guarantee? If 50%don't hatch he'll replace them for 50%of the cost.

I'm still waiting on my first batch of eggs from him... Anyone have any idea how long the lead time is? I ordered about 6 weeks ago but asked him to not ship until 4 weeks ago due to a surgery.

Mine just arrived June 10. About 10 weeks, 3 phone calls, a dozen or so emails... Still happy they're here, I'll just order way in advance next time.
