    If your hatching shipped eggs, I think your about where one would expect % wise. I had 13 developing eggs after candling a while back. Got nine georgia giants that are 1 month old today. Last batch I candled there were 10 infertile or early quitters out of 30 total. 17 have hatched, one of those only lived 30 mins, leaving 16 feisty little bobs and 3 eggs I dont think will do anything. Good luck on the up coming hatch!! Bill
