    How old do they have to be? I had eggs shipped from Florida to WA state, and have one gigantic chocolate Orpington to show for it. She will be a year old in July.

    Do hatchery eggs count?

    This hatch I purchased a mix of EE, OE, and SFH shipped to Athens, GA from Unidilla, NY which are progressing well, Seramas out of South James Port, NY that are also doing well and lastly some NN out of Hillsboro, TX that are unfortunately almost a total fail with 5/6 clear.

    A little bit confused...do they eggs have to be in the HAL? I set some a week before the HAL time. Can I enter those?
