    I recently received hatching eggs from mypetchicken. They are about 10 days along not sure how they are doing was curious if others have had eggs from them and been successful? I have them vertical in cut egg cartons but most don't look like anything has happened. Some have nerves but way up top by the air cell is that ok?

    Greetings from Kansas atm21, and :welcome. Pleased you joined us. I've never had much success with hatching eggs that have come through the mail. You might post your query here https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/5/incubating-hatching-eggs
    The folks that patrol the hatching forum are very knowledgeable. Good luck and happy hatching! :jumpy

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Shipped eggs vary wildly in hatching rates. 50% is considered the average.

    Somewhere on BYC are charts that show what eggs generally should look like at various stages, if you are candling them. I think if you put "Candling stages," in the search box it will pop up.
