I bought some eggs online from a BYC member. Put them in the bator and 28 days later I didn't get a single bird. This is my third time trying to hatch eggs. The first was quail (bought from ebay) and most of them hatched, the second I only had one baby chick hatch (bought from ebay) who died a week later and this time nothing. After the second time I went and bought a digital temp and humidity gauge and everything was where it was supposed to be. Auto turner did the turning work and I was excited to get some new baby chicks. Well on a whim I went outside and cracked them all open. They all looked like normal chicken eggs with the exception that they were very liquidy and the yolks fell apart. There was only one that had blood in it. My understanding, is that when eggs are fertilized, they have a blood spot in it. The eggs I get from some of my chicks have this blood spot and some don't. (I have 10 hens to 1 roo though). Am I correct in this thinking? If I am, then all but 1 egg wasn't even fertilized and I'm kind of upset about it. If I'm wrong well then what the heck went wrong! I'm seriously giving up on the hatching and just ordering baby chicks in the spring.
