    [​IMG] I got my frizzle eggs in the mail today and all but one are broken [​IMG] I put it in the bator anyway but I don't think it will hatch with the rough treatment it got in the mail.

    Yeah I e-mailed her. She had the mini dome bator in the middle of the box and the eggs all around, one in each corner. I would have packed it diff. but what can you do. I am very disappointed. But I put the one in the bator I made yesterday and am giving the dome one away.

    I know of noone around here with eggs and I really can't afford to buy any right now so I have all my hope on this one egg. I paid 6.00 for this one

    That's awful. IMO, that little bator should have been sent separately from the eggs.

    I agree or at least arranged so that the eggs were in the bator instead of on the outside. I was having such a bad day to begin with and now this. Oh when it rains it pours I guess.

    I wonder if that poor baby will hatch? I'm sure it was knocked around a lot. Well I guess I will give it a shot better than just throwing it away and we worked so hard on the bator so it's worth a test run I guess.




    I have been watching the bator closely and the temps. range between 98 and 103 in a still air bator. The temp. in the water wiggler is 99.5 steady. Humidity is ranging between 68 and 74% (is that too high?) I really hope I do this right.
