My DD wants to hatch some SQ bantam Ameraucana eggs this coming spring, so I'm getting ready to get on a waiting list for hatching eggs from a breeder in the midwest. We've never hatched eggs before. We would like to ultimately end up with at least 6 chicks, although more is of course better! Is there a standard success rate on hatching shipped eggs? I was assuming maybe a 50% hatch rate. I'd hate to drop $50 on a dozen eggs and shipping and end up with no chicks due to "scrambled" eggs or other shipping hardships. We're hoping to put them under a broody silkie, although I know someone who will incubate them for us if she doesn't go broody at the right time.... Thanks for any advice!
