    i recieved hatching eggs today, they were lost in the mail for 2 days. i put them in an egg carton to rest over night, but I afraid they might not due very well. they guy I got them from called me and said he is sending 9 more monday. cause he wants me to have fresh eggs and hope the stupid post office pulls their head out this time. The 7 I got from a friend all look to hatch this weekend can not wait

    Egg as old as 3 weeks can still hatch, though their viability drops significantly after 14 days.
