    I candeled my dutch bantam eggs yesterday. Only five are devoloping an the rest is clear. THe intersting thing is though that two colors didnt develop at all and .FRom another other color all three are growing and the last color has 2 out of 3 growing. Should i say something to the guy i bought them from on ebay?

    You might want to mention it to him, if he keeps his colors seperate, that 2 of the varieties the ro is not doing his job.

    I ship out eggs as well but its just one of those things that can't be helped sometimes.
