Quote:They were shipped in the worst of the heat wave. I emailed him asking him to wait, but he says he mailed them out as soon as he got my payment, and said he never had a problem. They were in paper towels in a styrofoam egg container, and then packed in crumpled newspaper in a box. Not really a good insulator. I'll candle again in a few days. I've spent so much money on hatching eggs, and I still don't have any araucanas. But I found a local gal who just recently got into raising araucanas, so I am hopeful again. My husband just shakes his head. Thanks Smoothmule for the luck. I need it.
