Does anyone find that shipped eggs take longer to hatch than own eggs?

I’ve done several hatches some with my own and currently some which are shipped usually my own eggs hatch on time so day 21. But my shipped eggs tend to take longer? The shipped eggs have only internally popped yesterday which was day 21 so I’m expecting them to hatch day 22 /23 has any one had this as well or is it just a conincidence?

I have done several batches of shipped eggs this year and many in the past and don't find that they take longer to hatch.

May be due to 'hot spots' and 'cold spots' in you're incubator, unless your using a broody to hatch, then I couldn't begin to answer the question as to why your seeing a difference.
