    Shhh don't tell my hubby, he tries to get good presents, but doesn't always succeed...[​IMG]

    So anyway...I got my bantam cochin eggs! This is the first time I've ordered eggs and I really hope they work even with the change in altitude...we are at 5000ft so I've heard low eggs going up is really bad...oh well I hope they are wrong!

    He packed them very nicely...(I bought them of off eBay, PM me if you want to know details)

    Oh ya and how long should I let them sit until they go in?

    Nice looking eggs

    I to live at 4800ft and have gotten eggs from lower elevations and they did just fine.

    I know Buster lives at over 5000ft and he ships in eggs.
    Sounds like they do just fine, too.
    Good luck on those pretty eggs!
