Trying to count my chickens before they hatch!

So I know that shipped eggs have a lower hatch rate than local or home grown eggs. I’m trying to find out how many of our eggs to expect to hatch. I have 24 ayam cemani eggs in the incubator that so had shipped to me in Oregon from the east coast. I candled them after three days and saw definite blood vessels around/coming from a small darker spot in 22 of the 24 eggs. My question is generally what percentage of eggs that show development reach a successful hatch? Should I still be expecting a hatch rate of around 50%, or does what I’ve seen in the eggs give cause for more optimism?
