Aurora and I traded some eggs.
She is the egg packing champion of the world. Mine got there was a couple broken and detached air sacs. I thought I was packing them so well. I have sent 2 batches of eggs and both have had broken eggs in them. Disgusting! I think the post office completely ignores the words "FRAGILE" and "EGGS" when written on the package.
My mailman left the eggs on my deck in with below freezing temps. I may or may not have live eggs. I candled her eggs and found some of the air sacs. I must admit I have trouble finding air sacs in turkey eggs. I did find one that now has 2 air sacs. one on the top and one on the side.
I got the eggs on Saturday and left them in the package to warm and relax. I opened them yesterday and they have been sitting since then. I will be putting them in the incubator today, after they get washed and rinsed. It appears she puts the date on hers, so the oldest egg is 8 days old today. It is time to hatch.
I only mark mine with which breeding group they come from. I place eggs every 7-10 days so I know they never get old.
Just curious how or what do you mark on yours?
I mark the air sac on all chicken eggs, I do not on Turkey eggs as it is just too hard to see. I have found if I do not mark chicken eggs I will put and egg in upside down. Especially with creamette eggs, which are a little on the round side.
