    I try to not incubate jumbo eggs. I receive higher hatch rates by eating the jumbo's for breakfast.:)

    Funny how that goes actually. I would think bigger would be better, but not in this case. Most of my most successful hatches came from choosing smaller to medium. Not saying it will not hatch, but my experiences have had less than excellent results with obnoxiously large eggs. I'll cross my fingers for you!:fl I am rooting for ya!:woot

    Have you done a candling of said egg? Although darker shell eggs are a little harder to see thru.
