    I have been hatching chicken eggs for many years. But we just put in 12 eggs we got off Ebay they were to be Rhodebars.
    They looked like they were doing good but we did not even get one to hatch. We candled them and they looked good. The only
    thing I can think went wrong was they were on the dryer, so I guess what I am asking is will the dryer vibration hurt the eggs.

    We put 35 eggs in our incubator. The twenty that came from our flock hatched. The others we got from local source; they were not shipped. The chicks all died around day 8 of incubation. I believe the hens are not fed properly and some kind of nutritional problem killed the chicks. That could be the problem with your eggs, or more likely vibration and additional heat from the dryer did them in.
