Where the eggs fresh or shipped?

Many eggs often fail to hatch. It could be fertility issues with the rooster. Fertile but unviable eggs do to rooster/hen mating incompatability.

It would be temperature issues. Humidity issues.

Too many reasons to list.

Of the 41 eggs did only the 6 develop or did some begin developing and then stop?

They were most likely not fertile or not viable. How old were the oldest of the eggs?

Roosters often go through a infertile period in winter with shortened days and less sunlight.
