It was awesome did not get that it went for $75 I asked the winner how much they are new because I never seen one before...his young daughter said a grand. Not sure it was worth that, but $75 was a steel. The cages were heavy enough to keep any animal that would fit in there....coon, small bear, giraffe turtle,momma rattlesnake and eggs...anything they were tough.

Nice haul!  Sorry you didn't get the brooder!  I want a giraffe!!!!!!

SOOOOOO......disappointed.....of 68 eggs set only 12 are definitely living with movement. Another 12 are questionable, that is i can not see in them or there was no blood ring but also no movement so they were left in. There were 23 clears. 20 blood rings. 1 that was full of sulfer smelling black gunk. Probably what happened to some of its friends. That seems to be lots of wasted money. I'm sad not one ayam survived, not 1 BLRW, 😭
I have 3 SBEL, 3 lav. Orp. 1 silkie, 1 jubilee, 2 CCL,2EE. Oh well they seemed to be packed well. Shipping sucks. Guess if I want any blue laced red wyandotts I will have to buy chicks!!!!

I so feel your pain on shipped eggs. It is so hot all over the states right now that is why I think my 1st set was a huge success and my second set was a disaster. Also quail eggs on eBay price dropped by half buyers must know something I do not or everyone just get there's already?

I am so sorry about the disappointing results.  I'm hatching shipped  AC's right now.  I have out of 14 I set, 7 made it to lock down. Only 3 have hatched so far.  2 more pips, but that's it.   Day 21 started an hour ago, so I think they still have time.  Of 12 shipped silkies, 7 made it to lock down, 3 have hatched, 1 pip.  Of my own eggs I set, 10t, 7 made it to lock down, 5 have hatched, 2 pips.  So, shipping is rough.

I agree, the heat has got to be horrible on shipping eggs.  I saw someone post earlier that they would use cold packs to ship eggs. I'm sorry your second was such a disaster,

 

 

I have a broody that every time she gets up to eat, someone else jumps in and lays an egg.  She had 12 eggs under her (she is a silkie) so my tenant that helps care for the chicks, thought she would be helpful and pull 6 out.  She didn't candle them.  She just chose 6.  They were outside in 110 degree weather for 30 minutes before I found out. I figure that is probably warmer than it was under the hen, but not long enough to kill them, so I dropped the 6 in to my running incubator.  I'll candle them at some point, but they could be anywhere from day 1 to day 14. 

 

I thought I was close to being done hatching for the summer.  I have about 6 eggs that are on day 16, and another 45 or so, that are on day 11.  Now I added these silkies, and a friend picked up a dozen BCM that she wants me to hatch.  So, I'll add hers, and will top off the rest of the bator with the last of my EE eggs that I think are fertile.   

 

THEN I will be done hatching for the summer.

Can you imagine?? Going your whole life&never getting to witness the miracle of a pip or peep? 😞(my sad face cartoon)
