    I raise cotton patch geese and I have had only five out of about 100 eggs hatch this year. I also received a call from a breeder in Canada today who reported that many of the breeders up there are having the same problem. Is anybody else having hatching problems?

    Naw, it started before the 'brid kill and fish kill' and before the 'oil spill'... so unless there's a time vortex caused by the super collider...

    Just if you search ppl who had great past hatches all of a sudden cant seen to get anything to hatch, and the hatcheries got backed up too in Feb/March...

    How strange. It's sure a disturbance in the force of some kind.

    Hmm, we've had a real low hatch rate this spring too, but we put it off to storing to long or shipped eggs. Honestly it's made my life easier to have fewer chicks to tend.
