    judging by the poor hatch and rotten eggs, I would say you got some old eggs from ebay..

    fresh eggs do not often gas up in a normal hatching session.. If they are cracked, then maybe yes..

    I avoid shipped eggs like the plague..

    sounds like you got old eggs. There are a few people on ebay selling bad eggs. It happens.
