    The Great Egg Shipping Experiment!

    Just received one of the unhappiest package of eggs ever. Actually, the seller packed the eggs very well: double boxed, each egg individually bubble wrapped, great packing between the boxes. He sent them promptly, Priority Express as requested. He sent extras. And then he packed every single...

    The Great Egg Shipping Experiment!

    Do you mean the 'Cluster Stuff'? It's the best I've ever found for stuffing plush toys, but I've never thought of it for shipping.

    Eggs sold on eBay as Welsummer and Polish?

    For the record, this is what hatched out of the "Tolbunt Polish" eggs. The Welsummers did not hatch (only one developed / quit on day 19).

    And back on the subject of AC - what do you guys *do* with your culls? Eat them? I'm serious about that. What do you do with chicks that hatch mismarked? Kill at hatching? Sell cheap as 'pretty black and white birds'? Feed out and send to freezer camp?

    I would like to suggest that whoever has received eggs from this seller which were not the breed claimed, should report the scam to the US Postal Service. She is using the USPS to pull off her fraud They frown on that sort of thing, big time. They only investigate if they get a number of...

    The one thing I don't like about the ACs so far is how flighty they are. No matter how often I attempt to interact with them, it's always a dead panic when I appear in their world.

    I asked @askebay about this on Twitter and was pointed to a document detailing when feedback can be removed. I believe mine was removed because I had received a refund (it met no other criteria for removal - I didn't swear, mention investigations, or use forbidden words like fraud). However...

    There are currently only 3 "Cemani" sellers with eggs on eBay. Is the third one selling what he claims?

    Here is what hatched from the small, white, "Tolbunt Polish" eggs from this seller: Brown with brown or olive legs. No crest. I'm sure they'll be cute, but they're not Tolbunts. Or even Polish. The 'Welsummer' eggs did not hatch. Caveat Emptor.

    Final (I guess) update on the eBay scammer: I finally communicated at length with eBay regarding the negs the scammer is now getting for chicks hatching yellow, for eggshells the very wrong color, and so on, and for stolen photos. End result? They don't care. As long as she is not stealing...

    The eBay scammer is starting to take some serious hits on her feedback now. People who bought "Ayam Cemani" eggs from her are finally getting some hatches. She must have raked in many thousands of dollars in sales at this point, and she still has auctions running. :( I have "Welsummer" and...

    Reprising fermented feed: I can't get my AC chicks to eat it yet, but stirred half and half with dry crumble to the consistency of damp crumble, they gorge. I figure any amount of the beneficial bacteria is better than none.

    Can anyone corroborate a connection between incubation temperatures and better (or worse) coloration at hatch? I just had 9 AC chicks hatch, having been unable to get the temperature in my incubator above 98.6 the whole time (I tried. I need to replace the disc thermostat). They hatched about...
