Looks like we are going to have some great hatches. Thanks everyone for joining in the hatch along. I think tonight I will put my turning cradle on my eggs. I have found that not turning shipped eggs right away does help with the detached air sacs. I only ended up with a few that are detached this time, so that is good.
As for the post office and the handling. I have decided that the word "fragile" on a box is nothing more than an invitation to play soccer with the package. One of the boxes I just had mailed was marked fragile all over it and I kid you not, one whole side of the box was smashed. Luckily, the eggs were in bubble wrap, with packing peanuts inside another box. So the smashed box was just that...a smashed box..not eggs. Still makes me wonder what they do to the packages that gets them in that shape. And I think as the post office continues to run in the red and become further in debt we are going to see slower and slower delivery times. The eggs I had shipped from Georgia to Wyoming took 5 days, and for some reason they say in the Denver sorting facility for 48 hours.
Well I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday. I am off to go clean out a coop!
