Ok, I have in my hatcher the following eggs: 7 Maran eggs- overdue to hatch on the 6th. 3 EE's due to hatch on the 14th and 2 pheasant eggs overdue to hatch on the 9th. Those are all shipped eggs. Now, I had 1 mixed cochin egg from my birds that I just for the heck of it threw in there to see what would happen. All these eggs were incubated the same, and put in hatcher the same. Mine was due to hatch yesterday. IT HATCHED!!! I'm going nuts!! A bad hatch is a bad hatch, I mean everyone has them SOMETIMES but this is just crazy. And the sad part is they develop then just...die I got a dozen marans from alaskenhenhouse who is in Alaska and I've had 2 hatch (NOT her fault). ALL were fertile!! I got 6 pheasant eggs from gamebirdsonly who is in Utah and 2 didn't develop at all, the others developed and died???? What really stinks is the eggs that are out under my hens are hatching too!! But they are mixed not pure I should just quit while I'm at least a little ahead but knowing me I won't!! I know...I can blame it on everyone else here, right, I mean ever since I joined I've been "forced" to swap and hatch, right??!! I'm ADDICTED and I CAN"T STOP!! Will there ever be any hope for me?? Is there a cure?? I hope you all realize that I'm just trying to make lite of all of our situations. I know I'm not the only one but, I'll tell you, when it's happening to you it seems like you're all alone. I love this board and everyone on it!! UPDATE- I have a wonderful broody turkey hen who has been hatching eggs for me for about 2 months now. I picked up some "fertile" eggs from our local livestock auction last month. So, seeing she was broody anyway, I gave them (all 14 of them) to her. I figured I only paid $1.00 for them so if some are fertile so be it. I just got back in from the barn-wouldn't you know it, 13 hatched and 1 started to but she must have stepped on it. So ALL of those eggs from someone else hatched. I GIVE UP!!!
