I, personally, have had poor luck with shipped eggs. Most do come in 2-3 days but I have ended up with very poor hatch rates. I have two different batches going now (one only a few days into incubation), my first batch came in 2 days and had 14 eggs. At one week, I candled them and had 6 of those that were perfectly clear, no indication that anything even started. (BTW, I did let tehm sit after getting them). 3 eggs had blood rings or brown masses with no veins at all- almost perfectly clear- so I assume they started and ended for whatever reason. I have 5 eggs progressing well. Is it safe to assume those 6 eggs where never fertile?? Does that include my hatch rate or is that considered to be a low fertility rate?? What kind of experiences do you all have with shipped eggs?
