    I ordered some buttons from a fellow BYCer about a month ago. They were packed beautifully. I have one live hatch, one that pipped and died, and 18 eggs that are doing nothing. I am thinking the P.O. probably scrambled them. I got A&M eggs off eBay around the same time, and out of 18, only 7 weren't scrambled. I am wanting to get a few button or A&M birds, or some eggs from someone IN KENTUCKY ONLY!! I do not want to risk having the P.O. destroy another batch, and would like to pick them up. Will pay cash, or I would trade bantam chicks or eggs, or standard chicken eggs, whichever you would prefer.

    Quote:That would be great!! I have only had 2 hatch out of 18 eggs I got, my luck they will be the same sex. Out of the 7 that weren't scrambled, one didn't develop, one had a blood ring, one quit at about day 6 or 7, and that leaves me with 4 eggs. The two that hatched did so yesterday, and I don't see any activity with the others. Good luck on your hatch!!

    Oh, I am so sorry your hatch was not better. You just never know do you? I have had eggs hatch all over the US and do great and some very close like TX not do well. But most folks got some to hatch and many had great or 100 percent believe it or not. Guess the PO really did a number on yours. If you want to try again, I would be glad to send more for shipping. Good luck on whatever you do? Sorry again!

    Quote:Yeah no problem Marie. The guy I got the A&M eggs off said the same thing, but those eggs came from AL, and I know they were scrambled. I haven't opened the button eggs up yet, still hoping I'll get 1 more out, but it doesn't look like it. The one that did hatch is 2 days old already. Really stinks, my 4 year old just loves the little thing, he would be ecstatic if there were a whole brooder full!
