    I have about 10 Cuckoo Maran ( English Standard) hatching eggs I would be willing to ship for $10 plus shipping, if you would be interested. They are pure breed, I have just not had time to check fertility on them yet. Would love to have someone test them for me. Just PM me if you are interested.

    I wouldnt toss those eggs yet.... I had the power go out on my sportsman for 5-8 hours and the temp dropped to room temp. I just kept them in and they hatched late (5 days late) but they still hatched.... and they were all healthy!!! its not a completely lost cause yet...

    If you have not tossed them its worth a try to see if they are still viable!!! just get th e temps back up and candle in a few days to see if there is still movement!

    worst case senario you will have spoiled eggs but at least its worth a try right!

    I second the fact of not tossing the eggs yet. During the ice storm in November or whenever it was last year, our power went out for a full 24 hrs. I wans't even home, so I couldnt even put some hot water bottles in, or blankets over. I candled a few days later, and they were all fine...

    Give them a chance if you havent tossed them already! [​IMG]
