WHAT DAY DID YOUR SHIPPED EGGS SUCCESSFULLY HATCH LIVE CHICKS - PLEASE ONLY USE YOUR OWN HATCHING RESULTS NO HERESAY RESULTS FROM OTHERS (though you are free to comment on those in the comment section below) As I sit here on day 23 with some not cheap shipped eggs doing diddly squat under my broody hen I've been searching the threads to try and decide when to admit defeat. What I've found however is no really good threads that answer the million dollar question of when do I give it up and when is it worth holding on to hope. I found comments to expect a delay but nothing on how much of one or how often with shipped eggs that delay occurs. I thought it would be helpful to others as well as it's a much asked question to have a bit of poll to see what others experiences have been. Feel free to add the final success rate of your shipped egg hatch in the comments. THIS IS SPECIFICALLY RELATING TO SHIPPED EGGS ONLY. Shipped eggs have much different results to non shipped so it's only for results of eggs that have travelled through the post. These eggs have to face temperature and rough handling to name just a few problems. What we want to know is does that cause delays as something to be expected from a shipped egg and how much of a delay should we expect. I have also given the option of broody or incubator as I'm quite curious if they give quite different results as well. Feel free to add the days you have had shipped eggs hatch as the poll will allow more than one answer. Thanks and looking forward to seeing what we discover.! If I can get enough results I would like to put it together into an article.
