I have 39 pheasant eggs in 1 bater and 12 in another. 6 of the 39 have hatched and 1 died shortly after hatching. The 12 in the 2nd bator were due to hatch yesterday (saturday, 5/5/12) but no movement or peep as of yet.
All of my pheasant eggs were shipped. The 39 came from New Mexico and I don't even remember where I got the other 12.
I also have 18 turkey eggs, all shipped. 11 came from the same person as the 39 pheasant eggs in New Mexico. The 11 are in the same bator as the 12 pheasant eggs that were due to hatch yesterday, they too were due to hatch yesterday. No movement or peep from them either.
Sometimes you have luck with shipped eggs, sometimes you don't. I know it can get expensive buying shipped eggs. I have $165.00 tied up in shipped eggs and only 5 babies so far to show for it, but as with any hobby it costs money and we'll keep spending to enjoy those hobbies....lol. Don't give up no matter how frustrated you get, I know I never will.
