    I am seriously considering buying some eggs from a breeder of Ayam Cemani's from Indonesia. My questions are...How long should they sit after I get them and what do you think the hatch rate would be coming such a long distance? I have never bought shipped eggs and incubated them before. I have incubated from my old flock before and have had great success. It will be expensive for 12 eggs so i'm wondering if it will be worth the money. I know it's a gamble for shipped eggs.
    Thanks!

    If you are confident they are pure ayam and not a scam, I say do it. I would let them sit 12 hrs and put them in. To many variable to guess a hatch rate, but don't expect much and you won't be disappointed.

    They are reputable and only breed the best! That's why I am choosing to buy from a farm in Indonesia. That way I will know they are "true" and nothing less than that! Even If I can get 3 or 4 out of the 12, so worth it!
    Thanks so much for your response!

    If you go ahead TamiHunter let us know how you go! I am so envious, we are not allowed to bring the eggs in here, they are an awesome looking bird!

    5 years ago I shipped hatching egg I sold to Guam . The buyer was happy. I don't recall the hatch rate, but they did hatch. The shipping may have been a little faster as Guam is a US territory. I hope you have a quality incubator.

    you cannot get anything as of ayam cemani from Indonesia...and cemani farms if that's where your looking at buying from...be careful...numerous people have tried buying...after paying the eggs get stopped at customs and don't make it to the destination...weather they are labeled for decorative use or not...be careful be careful and be careful...im looking out for you on this one....that's all im going to say

    edited to add you can buy cemani eggs from byc people for 15 bucks a piece and you can buy day old f1/f2 for 199 for day olds directly from the people that import the bird before the ban...so rethink what you will do if you haven't already
