    I got my eggs today and out of 12, 7 were broken. So I have 5 going into the bator.I candled those 5 to see what they look like and it looks like at least 1 might have air bubbles so that leaves 4 that might hatch. I'm so bummed. I've all ready e-mailed the lady I got them from but don't hold much hope I'll get anything out of it. Wasn't anyone on here. The outside of the box didn't have a mark on it, she just didn't pack them well and I guess they got all shook up. I'll try candleing in a week and see if anything is going on.

    That stinks, hopefully something will still hatch in the couple good eggs.

    Oh, that's too bad, Key West! I just had something similar, but not quite so pervasive, happen and when I contacted the seller she was more than happy to work with me. The good news is, of the 12 eggs I had left, 9 are on day 13 and are developing nicely! I hope you have some luck with the eggs you have left and that your seller comes through for you. That's the frustrating part about shipping eggs!!! [​IMG]

    They're just some mixed little banty game breed, nothing real special but I'm not gonna find any other then hers. I haven't heard back from her yet, she normally checks her e-mail in the morning. She only has a few hens laying right now so it took almost a week to get enough to send.
