If, for whatever reason, half of the eggs are broken when you get them, we will replace the eggs for the shipping cost. If at least half of the eggs are broken during shipping, you must get a postal worker to sign a letter stating so, and also get a picture and email it to me. This guarantee does not include the replacement eggs that are lost, stolen, or returned to me. It also does not guarantee that you will win at shows with these birds, nor does it guarantee a hatch. There are a lot of factors that influence the chances of winning at shows, including nutrition, condition of birds, and the size of the shows. Several factors come into play during incubation, so we have no way of guaranteeing a hatch. The incubation process is up to you. If you have any questions about our guarantee about what is covered and what is not, please ask before you bid! Thanks!!!
