I went hunting the day prior to my wife receiving the eggs, 4 days after she tells me only 1 egg was broke this time after 4 tries to get a shipment of leghorn eggs. how ever only 1 of the 11 was viable and it ended up developing a crack witch leaked into the incubator and caused the other eggs to stick, the shells are so thin I am surprised they made it through shipping. why is it we can have a 70 to 90% hatch rate from our own stock and a 0% rate from a professional hatchery, after 4 tries we got the eggs we ordered due to shipping issues but now 1 out of 11 eggs viable and it cracks. I must say I am sadly disappointed if the company issues a refund I'd be happy but I will not ask for it as they sent us 11 eggs when we ordered 10 and have been wonderful about the shipping issues and replacement. I recommend you give your breeding stock a better diet to make the eggs shells stronger like those of us backyard chicken owners do. Id still like to have the leghorns but Im thinking I have to get them elsewhere.

We are very sorry for the issues you've had with your egg orders. We use the same eggs for incubating here at the hatchery so I really don't know why your having so much trouble with the eggs you've received from us.
