    Same here, but I am waiting to sign up, hoping production with pick up along with roo duties, though I do have spares to let loose, just don't want too....I'll decide when the girls are more stable...

    I want to do the swap, but I've never shipped eggs before and I'd hate someone to be disappointed.. [​IMG] Plus I have one roo for 23 girls, so fertility is questionable. I think I'll have to buy some eggs for this one and hope something hatches! [​IMG]

    I had 1 roo and 32 girls with 100% fertility. Have you looked when you crack them open? There's time to do a test hatch too! There's plenty of threads on how to ship eggs. You have to start somewhere... we were all new shippers once.

    Shipping eggs is really easy. Read some of the threads on shipping. I have a 100% receiving rate on what I ship.

    I'd like to join in on this hatch. Can I wait until around the first of December to fill out the form or does it need to be filled out right now?

    You can wait until you know what you're setting.
