Hello
I’m experienced with hatching eggs and shipped eggs. Black copper marans eggs) I let them rest, hand turned 3 times a day. I had them upright the whole incubation including lock down. Out of 11 that went to lock down 3 never pipped/quit. Two hatched hydrocephalic both I had to assist or they wouldn’t have hatched at all. One passed after a hour the other died about 18 hours later.

I was planning on having these guys go to-my olive Egger pen but no I’m afraid something is wrong with their genetics. The eggs spent 7 days in transit-got lost. I ordered them from eBay.
any advice is appreciated
