    We've added coronation Sussex eggs to our incubators and have not had much luck hatching. While we've had a couple hatch, most tend to develop, pip, and quit. Other breeds in same hatch batch come out just fine. Is there some magical technique that needs to happen? Help! Please and thanks!

    Are the eggs you are hatching of other breeds being sourced from the same place as the Coronation Sussex eggs?

    Yes, we have different breeding pens for the various birds but we usually don't get eggs from offsite.
