    Its hard to say why they give up.

    It could be bacteria inside the egg, it could be any number of things. I had 1 of those with my own eggs this go around.

    I've quit ordering eggs. They very rarely hatch and are very problematic. I would buy chicks from your local feed store or a local breeder, and then start incubating your own eggs from those hens when they get old enough. Just make sure to buy some chick every other year or even every year to add to your stock to keep them stronger and more disease free. Our eggs just started hatching two days ago and they are all really strong chicks. But I also went down to the feed store and purchased a few to mix in.
