    I ordered 12 NH Reds hatching eggs and with priority mail it took USPS 9 days to deliver. Can I still breed them in my incubator or should I throw them away? [​IMG]

    I would still try, I had some that took 7 days to get to me and it was incredibly hot that week, most are in the hatcher as of yesterday. You will probably still get some to hatch.
