    I just candled 17 Blue Slate Turkey, 7 Muscovy Duck and 11 mixed chicken eggs in three different incubators.
    I only have 2 turkeys, 1 duck and 1 chicken forming in them. I had 4 blood rings in the chicken eggs, 1 in the duck and nothing in the turkey.
    I've had great hatches except for the spike in temp a month or so ago. What on Earth is happening? Has the post office decided to shake, rattle, and roll them???

    If you had them shipped, there is no telling what could have happened. Good luck with the ones that are developing. [​IMG]

    Were they shipped when it was extremely hot out? That might have done it. Its why I'm not shipping eggs right now, Kate. I'm sorry it's not going that well.

    I think the heat was probably a big factor, they were some of my trades and a couple of purchases. I've always had good luck on my shipped eggs, most of the time anyway. Darn it I was really looking forward to them! Thanks for the support, I appreciate it very much.
