    36% is perfect!

    Leave it alone for at least two days--humidity goes down at first.

    I am back from walking to the local Whole Foods Store where I purchased two dozen packages of brown fertile eggs!

    So far this hatch a long has cost me $8.00!

    I hope I get my moneys worth.

    Did they say fertile?
    I'm having a hard time finding these.
    Only can find "free range"
    Wondering if that just means open warehouse floor with tiny door to porch

    You are on the members list.

    I will start a thread for the shipping distance but a chick has to hatch to win so this will be an end of the hatch a long contest.

    A couple of my eggs are VERY round and I could not tell which side was up! Local eggs don't really need to be candled if their fresh. Shipped eggs do to make sure the air cells are ok.

    I've done it both ways now and had
    Good results with upright, but I am no expert!
    Ooooooh YEAH!!! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Yes, that is correct. I've seen the fertile eggs before (hatched 1/23 traders joe eggs) and they will be clearly marked. Ask if they carry fertile eggs, and if not check around at all the organic food stores in your area.
