The girls and roosters are gearing up. I switched on the lights a week ago, 2 days ago I got 1 egg, yesterday I got 2, today I got 4. Welcome "spring"! Looking forward to a test hatch setting here in a couple days. Once they are good and fertile, can start the kids's project going with the school.
My jumbo coturnix arrived, box bashed in on the side, but all safe in their foam. Nice BIG eggs, just gorgeous. They are bigger than my silver/tuxedo cortunix eggs from earlier this week. I can see some outcrossing for size in my future.
For those that remember my box saga from last week, an update:
Had to wait until today to go in and discuss with Palmyra PO the problem. Sorry, I can't do anything, I'm just a clerk, go to Whitewater. It shows it delivered.
Called Whitewater (got tired of driving over there) and finally, thank Bob, I got someone who wanted to help me. VERY nice lady, asked if I got my eggs fine today, discussed the saga of the eggs and described last Saturday and Monday's chain of events. She tracked down GPS of the carrier, looks like at the time my box got marked delivered, he was delivering another box a couple miles away with a similar street number (though totally different street name). She suspects he dropped both boxes there, and tentatively confirmed that GPS didn't show him at my place that day. She is going to check into it. If they find the box, we're to mark it damaged/refused so the seller can claim insurance. If it's not found, seller would claim non-delivered/missplaced, so hopefully can recoop some funds. Hopefully will get this straightened out soon.
