    well, i got 2 orders of shipped eggs last month. 1 was 14 buff silkies and the other as blue/splash silkie eggs. 2 buff were cracked the rest were in great shape, i set them on the 29th of March. I candled last night and not one single buff started...... and out of the blue /splash, only 2 have started developing 23 eggs tossed to the trash......just very very disapointing. I've never had NONE develope, ive had zero hatches but never 0 developement from a set of eggs. [​IMG]

  2. So sorry to hear that. I had a similar experience in my last hatch. Shipping seemed to do a number on one particular batch and I only got one chick out of 12 eggs. My other batches did great, though. Sometimes it's just not in the cards. [​IMG]
  3. In my last shipment of eggs there were very little development and only got one maran chick.
