    So you guys think that even though none of the eggs showed any signs of developing at day 5 that they still could have been viable? The eggs were not shipped, local pick up.
    I'm not sure on the free part, lol, I'm just afraid if it's something going on her end and I get more eggs, free or not, that it will just be another disappointment.

    This time of year especially, eggs seem to be more porous. Unless you actually checked the blastodisc, there's no way to know if they were fertile. The rotten one makes the whole batch seem suspect of not being fresh, but they can also go through things during shipping that can kill them all before they get the chance to develop. Keep us posted of your decision[​IMG]. I vote, more eggs if they're free! Maybe your seller will be very careful about what she sends this time....

    I agree with getting more eggs. I'm working on making my coop ready for a winter with too many chickens. :lol:

    Tempting! I can't set that many, and I also question how they'd cope with a harsh winter cooped up with many chickens. What do you think? I'm going to a show on Sunday to search for about a dozen chicken eggs. The waiting has been difficult.
