I did ask for the eggs to be shipped with the 72+ hour heat pack, but I think you are all right about the low fertility this time of year. I had never even thought about how the more populated areas may be rougher on the eggs, it's a really good point. I'm going to try again in March with HinkJC for the Orpingtons.
I wish I could go to Hutchison but it's a 10 hour round trip. We need some poultry meets way up here in the north. Hoping to go to the one in Floodwood. Will your sister be at that one if they have it?
Where and when is Floodwood? Is it a bigger sale or just a little local get-together? Only poultry or selling other stuff? My sister goes to alot of different sales, flea markets and auctions (she also has a nursery business and sells alot of plants). Give me info and I'll pass it on, you never know where she'll end up.

Hey Ralphie, better send two Roos with, just in case the little girl doesn't make it, you wouldn't want the little roo to be all by himself now, would you?
