    Day 8 of incubation... just removed a bunch of nothing-eggs. Some had contents sloshed together when I checked the insides; a few others had blood rings. Of two breeds ordered - a dozen eggs of each - only one of each breed is definitely developing properly. [​IMG] I have gone from being the prospective parent of 5 - 20 chicks... to 2. If I'm lucky.

    [​IMG] Sorry to hear that. Shipped eggs are a huge risk. Maybe next time will go much better.
