There is a lot of controversy over hatching shipped eggs. I would like to hear some opinions on this subject as well as advice, tips and knowledge that may help others be more successful in hatching eggs that have been shipped. I know personally what a huge disappointment it can be to purchase hatching eggs and have zero hatch. I've also bought eggs from well known breeders and had great hatch rates. What I do know is buying hatching eggs and having them shipped through the mail to us is a lot like gambling and it has to a risk you are willing to take.
