I have dropped more than I would like to admit

I searched online for someone a few years ago and never figured it out, not quite as simple as a blood spot evidently.

I'm down to 3/15 eggs from the shipment from TX and they were the oozers. I don't know if it's reasonable to ask for anything from her either. The clears are all local pick-up. I traveled 45 minutes to get them. Ugh. Just ugh.
that sucks for the local pick ups, I would def contact them. :( and like I said before I am close to you should you want any breeds I may still have come spring, And even if you want to run over for chickies. ;)
