    I am surprised to have so many early conker-outers.

    Some were bacterial obviously. Some do not 'appear' to be bacterial.

    Has anyone ever had alot quit early on like this?

    I had 48 going..................

    thanks. i think i may have let the eggs get too cool during storage. we had a real cold night while they were being stored; and this may have affected them...........but i am not sure............
