    hey Jeffross1968, I got the variety pack from Gabbard Farms too, mine arrived yesterday. I'm trying to keep my expectations for hatching low, but seeing the eggs from so many different breeds is making it hard. lol Best wishes for a good hatch!


    Wolftrack, what a horrible experience! Hope you and your dog heal quickly and those creepy men get a good dose of karma!

    Quote:Are any of them Mercury thermometers or are they digital? I have bad luck with digital and trust my old mercury thermometer. Do you have one for taking a temperature like in your mouth that is mercury - the old kind? Put a small glass of water in your incubator and wait over night for it to reach the temp usually 6 hours or so then put the thermometer in the jar of water and give it a few minutes and see what it reads.

    Quote:Don't worry, you can still hatch with us. I've set some early (I have ducks due on the 22nd) and it looks like I won't be setting some eggs until Monday, either. It's ok. Some always hatch early, too.

    They are closed and the number has been busy. We have the worlds worst post office. I dropped off packages to be mailed from them and they didn't even leave the post office for like 3 days! Grr! We have ail tomorrow, but why would they be marked out for delivery and then not come? I HATE my post office. from now on i am going to get my stuff shipped by UPS.
