    I'm relatively new at incubating eggs (less than 4 sets) and I ordered 8 of the expensive jubilee orps. They all arrived today and all slosh like they are full of water. This is a major disappointment. I have the feeling they are junk :( Am I right?

    All you can do is try them and see what happens. You may be surprised.

    They started stinking even before seven days went by so I candled the rest and threw away the sloshy ones. I couldn't tell for certain that the four good eggs are even fertile. Still going for the best

    So I just decided to check them again and I honestly don't think any of the eggs are fertile. It's been fourteen days and none of the eggs are showing any dark spots, only slight rings around the air sac :( So THEN I decide to read the customer reviews of this person I ordered from. Double :((
