Am I just too trusting? I am definately new at this. There is a lady locally that I bought Black Copper Marans eggs from. I was happy that they wouldn't have to be shipped! I went to her place and picked them up. She showed me around and I was so excited. Long story shorter.... I had inferior incubators and none of them hatched. One of them pipped but then died. My husband did like an egg topsy on the rest and only the one that pipped had developed fully. There was a partially grown one and the rest of the 12 did not look fertile even. I told her how it turned out and that I had ordered eggs from someone else. She offered to sell me some again. This time I got a LG incubator and an egg turner. She was asking me who I got my eggs from and then warned me about some other breeder she had tried. etc. So my 6 eggs I got from another breeder I hatched 4 of them. I was happy with that. They are very strong healthy birds. It is day 24 on the eggs I got from this lady and NOTHING. I am really mad. She sells her eggs on e-bay I think. I am thinking I will just have to learn my lesson because If she is that mean to sell me bum eggs twice and she knows where I live and my phone # I don't want any trouble with her if she is CRAZY I really feel cheated though. I could have taken the time and money and had a beautiful bunch of chicks right now. What do you think?
