I just placed some shipped hatching eggs in the hatching tray and have a question for all of you with more experiance. This is my very first time to hatch shipped eggs. I have hatched our own eggs for many years, so not a novice at incubating, just a newbie at incubating shipped eggs. I'm currently using a very early model 1200 Sportsman incubator with auto turners, etc.. All our own eggs are hatching fine as of this week. I hatch every friday. I ordered two varieties of Orloffs from a seller. They arrived very timely, wrapped great, all eggs were shipped in the same box together. Good comunication with the seller before ordering and during shipping, even answered a couple extra emails concerning lines and strains after the eggs arrived. All the eggs were allowed to "rest" for a day and then placed in the same tray in the sportsman incubator. I candle our hatching eggs at around 10 - 11 days and again at lockdown on day 18. Here's the thing; the first dozen (Shipped 15 total) at 10 days they all were devolping except one clear. Pitched it. At day 18 still had 12 looking good, two showed no further development, so pitched those. Have 12 in lockdown out of 15. The second variety, ordered a dozen, shipped 13. At day 10 NONE had veins or any sign of being fertile. NONE! My question is this. Should I contact the seller about this? I know from the thousands of post on here that "it" happens. It just seems to me that them all being shipped together, same box, same age, same treatment, etc, that there would have had to be at least a few start unless there was a fertility issue. I don't want to whine, but they were very expensive eggs (to me anyway). What would you do?
