    Out of 27 blrw eggs in my genesis, only 10 are developing. The rest never started (except one had a blood ring). some appeared scrambled. Guess these 10 if they hatch will be $10 chicks lol. The other eggs in my bator that aren't blrw are doing very well. Of course the ones I wanted the most are the ones not developing. <sigh>

    That's how it always works...the ones you want the most don't turn out for you. Hope the 10 that are still going all hatch for you!

    Quote:I'm going through the same thing with my bantam blrw eggs. I have 2 out of 8 developing. This was my favorite too [​IMG] I guess its better than 0 [​IMG]

    Oh dear!!! I am sorry to hear that. [​IMG] I know you have some pretty expensive ones in there. [​IMG] However, the way I look at it, if those 10 make it just fine, $10 is pretty decent for a high quality chick you really wanted. [​IMG] Good luck with those guys!!!

    I know how you feel, but don't give up. It took quite a few eggs to get the start on a couple of my breeds....BLRWs included. Some people's eggs I had no luck with and others much better. [​IMG] that the remaining 10 keep going for you.

    Monarc, these aren't my eggs. I have some of mine going in in the morning. The ones I have in there now are ones I purchased to increase and diversify my flock. I'm anxious to see if mine do any better for you than the ones I bought did. Some were certainly scrambled... darn usps.

    I guess I'm on the hunt for blrw eggs........again! I thought this hatch would be my only blrw hatch from outside stock this year, but guess not. I'd like to get a flock of 50 to choose the best 10-15 out of.
