Well… came home from my moms last night to a new baby when lockdown wasn’t supposed to be until today (10/15) 😂 so here’s baby pics! 4 more hatched over night and 2 more have pipped this morning

Beautiful!!! It looks like you are having a great hatch! :celebrate Are the eggs from your birds?
Actually this is a TERRIBLE hatch ratch. I received 33 eggs - 11 were not fertilized, a week later another 9 hadn’t developed, and I ended up with only 8 going in to lockdown.
These are NOT from my birds. This is the THIRD shipment of eggs from a seller. My first shipment I got 3 (from 15) my second I got NONE from 15 and now 8 from 33. So really terrible rates.

Congrats! Isn't it fun when they start popping out like popcorn? :jumpy
Looks like a nice variety of colors, too.

This is my first time EVER hatching! I’m homeschooling my 5 year old this year so we have both thoroughly enjoyed this little science class 😂😂

I hope @R2elk will chime in his opinions on colors 😊 please?

You have perseverance, for sure. 😁 Good for you!

I'm an experienced hatcher and have also had abysmal hatch rates from shipped eggs in the past year. My most recent hatch was 1 of 15...and the eggs had been severely shipping-damaged, including cracks (which, prior to this, I'd only seen rarely in properly-packed shipped eggs). I have 3 more batches of shipped eggs in the incubator now and am hoping for better hatches. 🤞

I am stubborn as hell 😂😂😂

plus I want some new bloodlines in my group, and some new colors!
I couldn’t believe! I spent like $100 to get 9 (so far) 😖😖

Oh! Bummer on the hatch rates! We’ve just been discussing hatching shipped eggs on another thread:

https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/new-incubation-questions.1497417/unread

Shipped eggs are tough all around it seems. That’s great that you have those little ones hatching!

As for your colors, what colors were the parents? What colors does the breeder expect from the group?

The most expensive chickens I have ever gotten were from hatching shipped eggs. It is usually cheaper to buy day old chicks.
