I have bought hatching eggs online & have read the horror stories people have about buying hatching eggs. Mishandling, x rays, etc are supposed to kill hatch rate. I am curious to know, has anyone tried to handle their eggs roughly or maybe even have them x rayed & then tried to hatch said eggs? I have been doing some reading & according to what I have read, the USPS (which is what most people use to ship eggs), x rays few if any of their packages.So by that rational, most eggs should get to you in good shape for hatching. If this is the case, are the people selling the eggs at fault? Maybe shipped eggs have a poor hatch rate because the people selling them aren't checking fertility often enough or at all? I am going to attempt to hatch eggs I have mishandled as maybe they would be during shipping & see how many, if any hatch. I don't know where I could get them x rayed without looking like a total crackpot but I will also try to do this if I can. Anyone with any insight, info, etc, is more than welcome to comment/suggest things, etc. Thanks in advance... BTW I will be using my Cream Legbar eggs as the test subjects. I have been getting a 90+% hatch rate with my flock.
