Are you sure they are fertile? What sort of incubator are you using and what has been your process? There are SO many things that *could* be causing your issue -- knowing more about what is going on will be helpful in finding the problem(s).

Did you examine the unhatched eggs to verify that the eggs you bought were actually fertile? If so, at what stage did development appear to have stopped?

I check the eggs and some didn't have anything inside but some where almost completed form I think it have to do with the temperature the
thermometer that come with the machine say 99 and a digital the I use have a 110, is like 10 degree different

I have found that no one thermometer can be relied upon. I use 3 different ones at the same time to check my temps. I have a box with probably 50 that aren't accurate that i've tossed out.

I think the best bet is to buy an expensive one who has everything stock temperature and humidity reader.
