I had some old timers tell me that the reason my eggs did not hatch was the thunder storms,thought they were pulling my leg so googled it and a lot of people think that it is true,it goes for broodies as well as bator eggs.I had two hatches that were under broodies and none hatched.

According to experts its a myth that has been around for a 100 years or more.But some people say that it does affect the hatch rate

Color me skeptical on that one. I do believe some of the "tales" but need to have some science to back them up. Even just a little science ☺! Like lightning can make tomatoes grow faster. I believe that one.

Sorry to hear of your failed hatch, though...
