    took all the advise you all gave and candled all the eggs and took them all out and smelt them. I found two with no visable air sack that did smell a bit that I threw there is another one which I am unsure of but will see later one with blood ring and another one possibly not a hundred percent if it is a blood ring or not. It is not an entire ring now have only 6 out of 12 left [​IMG]

    I understand completely. I started with 24 and am down to 9 with my fingers crossed.
  3. I have 7 out of 18, but I'm OK with it. It freaked me out at first but I think it's just hatching reality.

    When you buy shipped eggs. you mostly get a 50% ratio or less. That is still good for shipped eggs. I freaked when I had all 15 fertile but 11 made it. I usually get 50% or 0%. It is still good in my opinion [​IMG]
