I just bought 18 eggs from ebay about a week and a half ago. I received the eggs and some were really dirty so I cleaned them the best I could. I let them sit for about 8 hours at room temperature before placing them in the incubator which I had already had heated up and ready. On day 7 I candled the eggs and saw NOTHING in NONE of the eggs. I put them back in hoping for the best since it was still early. The next morning I got up, one of the eggs had cracks all around it and was oozing out gunk! I pulled it and discarded it. I candled again while I was in there and still saw absolutely nothing! Has anyone had this bad of an experience with online purchased eggs? I bought them from what seemed to be a reputable person. I wonder if the eggs were even fertile or did I just have bad luck. I am so disappointed. Is there anything I could have done differently?
