    I have just purchased hatching eggs but last summer only 2 hatched :( I wonder if it was from the heat? hmm It is winter now... Or is it rare they hatch at all after shippping. Anyone have answers or experiance in this ? Thank you

    any time you have eggs shipped you can usually expect 50% loss but it can be higher or lower depending on the USPS and how rough they are handled....You can also get a 100% hatch out of them it is just the chance you take with shipped eggs.
