    So, i got about 48 eggs of various breeds & i was candling them today as its the 7th day--Believe it or not!!!! I didnt even find a single egg withe veins... they were empty like hollow bones :( I am so upset....

    The story of the eggs' transport:-
    The eggs came in public transport & the highway is the bumbiest highest in the whole wide world!

    i did set them to rest for more than 24 hours & then incubated them. NOW there's absolutely nothing in them ::(

    Texas Kiki Did you candle today?

    I am sorry to hear that none of your eggs developed.
    I don't think it is fair to blame it solely on the "shipment" though.

    They could have not been fertile to begin with.
    They could have come from a not so healthy stock.
    Your bator could have been off.

    They are too many variables to narrow it down to solely the shipment.
