    Surely there is someone on here that is setting eggs today? I'm not, I'm hoping to stop once the eggs in the bator hatch, but I can still wish you good luck! [​IMG]

    You will do fine. As long as you got good eggs that were packaged well. I recieved eggs from 4 different people at the same time one persons eggs I hatched 6 out of 8 packaged very well. one persons packaged extremely poor 2 of 6 didn't even arrive intact others 0 hatched the other 2 were average packed and 4 out of 12 hatched but another 3 of the 12 developed all the way just didn't hatch. They were all placed in at the same time.

    my eggs were packaged pretty good. they were wrapped in TP and put in a egg carton surrounded by loads of newspaper inside the box. all of them made it here safe and sound. they didn't have far to travel though. they were shipped from east TN and i live in middle TN. i candled all of the eggs before i set them and they all looked fine except 2 which looked as if something was floating inside. they weren't clear i can tell you that..lol she dated the eggs the day they were laid and they were the oldest 2. i set them with the others anyway but marked them so i know which ones they are.
