    I was really excited. My parents live in Spain and I've been trying to persuade them to bring Andalusian hatching eggs with them when they come over on 12/21. Now I find out that no hatching eggs can be imported from Spain b/c they had a couple of cases of AI. Like we didn't???? Sigh.....

    I have friends from St. David that went to Spain to pick up their son.

    On the way back they packaged some hatching eggs (some sort of game chicken there) in baggies with some boiled eggs (packaged in a separate smaller bag) inside the big baggy. They just told the fellow at customs they get hungry.

    Walked right through with their hatching eggs.

    Now had they figured it out they might have taken them from them, but I don't know... worked for them.
