You know I had REALLY horrible hatches from shipped eggs my first 5 times! I had over a dozen eggs every time and out of 5 orders, only 2 chicks hatched.Okay. This is really off subject, but I live in northeat MO. I've wanted to start raising seramas, I don't know anyone in my area who has them. I tried shipped eggs and not a single egg hatched. I have another batch in in the bator right now, but if there was anyone in my area with chicks or even adults I think I would have a lot more success. I was hoping someone here might be able to point me in the right direction.
I ordered another dozen a few weeks ago (shipment number 6), got a few extras in the order, and this time I hatched 9!!!!! I think it is REALLY just luck of the draw from the horrible shipping conditions. You might just have to keep trying. However, this can end up costing as much as just buying an adult breeding pair.
Just my 2cents =)
