    Hi there and [​IMG]
    What was the temperature and humidity?
    Did you candle the eggs during the incubation period?
    How often did you turn the eggs?
    Did you start turning after 24 hours and stop turning at the end of day 18?
    Last question is did you turn up the humidity from day 19?
    Was there any major temperature drops or rises during incubation?

    Did you buy the eggs off someone or are they your eggs?
    if you bought the eggs and we find that you did everything perfectly,
    Then you can ask for a refund, If you did do something wrong then you can't get any money back
    as it was a personal mistake.

    Good luck,
