I recently bought some hatching eggs, 54 of them to be exact. They were all packed well when we received them but the problem was the top two layers of packing and the eggs contained within were damp with condensation. They came from the midwest where it was colder at the time than where I live, TX. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this happen to their eggs with them being shipped from cooler climes to warmer climates? Or do you think that the eggs were refrigerated before they were shipped and thats why there was so much condensation on them? BTW only 25 of them were fertile after 10 days and only 3 eggs hatched with only 1 chick surviving past the first day. We had fresh eggs from our chickens set at the same time that hatched over 90% so it wasnt the incubator or anything we were doing in that regard. Pretty disheartened by this experience, never had a shipment of eggs go south on me so to speak like these did......on top of it all they were an Extremely Rare breed....ugh.
