I won "6 hatching eggs" in a BYC contest and all 11 of them arrived safely.   I know, I know.....sigh.  But they arrived today after only a couple of days in transit, and it was pretty much a straight shot from Colorado to here with minimal handling, gorgeous weather, and since they are from Colorado there was no altitude change to deal with.  Too light to candle yet, but I did take a quick peek and didn't see any  really apparent wonky air cells.  I'll know more about that tonight when it gets dark enough to really look at them.  I got them from @nate1the1great1
 and what a great packing and marking job!  The box made our postmistress giggle, and she had to take pictures of it.  I'll post some shots in a bit.

Nate sent:
3 Black Austrolorps - I will learn to spell that!
1 Easter Egger
1 Leghorn
1 Cochin
1 Naked Neck
1 Nankin
1 Silkie
2 Bantams

The Silkie will be Kendra's and the Bantams will be Katie's.

Just remember australorps as a Australian Orpington, you mash the two words together and you'll be sure to get the spelling right. It does look like a rather funny word to me sometimes, I've wrote/typed it multiple times before thinking that it must be spelled another way haha.

They stare at you if you're slow on feeding them.

Two out of 28.  Not a good first hatching experience I'm afraid.  The dark Olive Egger is Yokel, named after @LocalYokel  and the little buff one is Sweet Pea, a Cream Legbar Cockerel.

My first breed to grow out and start breeding. I'll have to post some pics of my guys/gals later on... I currently have a cockerel that is getting a bit too protective for my liking though  :hu.
