oh darn! sorry to hear that. I have sworn off incubating shipped eggs, this is actually the first time in.. ~2 years I've tried incubating shipped eggs. hatch rates on shipped eggs - not so great! let's just say a LOT of money has been spent on shipped eggs and husband put his foot down! here's hoping these chicks come out of their shells soon! the OE chick that's hatched looks very black, even the toes and legs are all very dark! beak too. the feathers are still wet but they look black or maybe blue.. hope it's a girl!
