    I've had 100% fertility rates but something always goes wrong with one or two along the way to hatch day.

    Congrats on your pending hatch!!

    i have had two people that i shipped eggs to this year and they both had 100 percent hatches. shipped from tenn to fla and il. one was a ebay sale. i couldnt believe it when they emailed me. i am lucky if i get a 80 percent hatch from my own eggs.
  5. I have never had 100% on hatched eggs. In fact some I bought had 0%, but usually a few do hatch.

    Its rare to get 100% on your own eggs much less shipped ones. It can happen but the odds of it are not good.

    I've had 2 100% hatch rates on "shipped" eggs. I brought over a dozen guinea eggs home from my grandmother's house to mine (a 5 hour drive). I guess that is "shipped" [​IMG]

    I have some in my home made incubator that I ordered. I ordered 8 (and they sent 2 extra) All 10 were developing, but 2 quit along the way. have 8 going into lockdown on Wed. That's kind of 100% since they sent extras. I hope all 8 hatch properly! Good luck.
