    I will send exactly 12 fresh eggs out Thursday morning.

    One pen is Tennessee and his girls.

    The other pen are my new millies, which include bloodlines of Karl Urshel. There will be more eggs from this pen, as there are currently more hens there. (sorry, no close-ups of them yet.)

    I need payment by PayPal so I can ship these on Thursday.
    They will be well packed, and I will add delivery confirmation. I cannot guarantee hatch due to elements beyond my control. But the eggs will be </= 3 days old and are fertile.

    Quote:I've not had a chance to hatch any out of the new pen. Others have hatched from my main pen with good to fair results.

    The ones I cracked all had good bullseyes, and one hen briefly thought about being broody and the eggs showed started development. So I feel confident in offering these for hatching.

    I was not surprised by fertility, as the rooster was, um, enthusiastic about doing his 'job'....

    Thanks. I received a dozen of these eggs and only one hatched. (I am sure something I did!) Anyway the little hen needs some friends! [​IMG]

    Quote:Millies can be hard to hatch. I almost quit selling eggs because it was such a bummer when something would go wrong.
    Most folks get 75% that develop nicely the first 18 days. It's the hatching where it gets tricky, and I think that's true for all shipped eggs.

    After my girls quit for winter, I'm going to learn to ship chicks before Spring. [​IMG]

    Quote:Not sure I'd want a hen sitting outside to hatch anything at this time of year!
    Why are they broody now? [​IMG]

    I have 2 d'Uccles and a showgirl on eggs right now [​IMG]
    I need chicks like I need extra holes in my head.
