    I purchased ameraucana hatching eggs from Lisa and tonight was day ten, time to candle and cull.

    I am pleased to report that I only pulled one clear egg out, the rest were veining and had some lively embryos bouncing around.

    Lisa did one awesome packing job as well.

    I realize they all may not hatch but this is the best mail order batch I have gotten to date!

    Thanks Lisa! [​IMG] I highly recommend your eggs!

    Oh, before I forget, there is a mail delivery person who should also be mentioned. I left the house very early and was away ice fishing the Saturday these eggs arrived. I got home around 5:20 that evening and a message on my answering machine was from my mail carrier. He said my eggs arrived but the PO closes at noon. He left his cell phone number. I phoned him and he said not to worry, meet him at the PO and he will go in and get the box. He promised he kept them in a warm spot and in a safe place.

    I drove to Montpelier and there was Ruben just walking out of the PO with my box. We chatted a bit and I took off for home.

    I called the Post Master the next day and I think I really surprised him to make a GOOD report on an employee. I could tell he inititally thought I was calling to report a problem. [​IMG] Silly man.

    [​IMG] Yay Lisa!! Yay Ruben!! I love hearing positive stories. We have a great mail carrier, too. I received a batch of eggs in the middle of a huge snowstorm (the worst we've seen here in about 10 years, a foot of snow--don't laugh, those of you up north--we rarely get more than an inch or two around here, and we just don't know how to function when it really snows! [​IMG]) and darn if our mail lady didn't make it up our 1/2 mile driveway to bring those eggs to my front door. She knew what they were, said she didn't know if she'd make it up our drive (we have a very steep hill, too), but she had to try 'cause she couldn't bear the thought of taking those eggs back to the post office to spend another cold night.

    I hatched out the cutest little frizzled cochins from her- well, I didn't but my broodies did. They look like bumble bees running around out there!
