    Hi I wanted to update you on my hatch- It's been a couple months and Im sorry its taken me so long to write, but I wanted to thank you for the amazing experience with your eggs! They arrived right away and the packaging was just AWESOME. Not one egg broken or even cracked- shipped all the way to WA state! I set all 14 and at candling on day 14 I could see only one was not fertile. At hatch day I had 9 beautiful, healthy babies. The others quit right before hatch. Still, this was a tremendous success for me with shipped eggs. The last time I hatched shipped marans (about 3 years ago), I only had one hatch, and it had leg deformaties. So again, thank you and I will definitely order again :)

    Hi Brian!

    Here's an update:
    On our hatch, 14 out of 26 eggs hatched, with four infertile. (Thank you for the two extra eggs.) I think the PO was pretty rough as most were early quitters. Packing was GREAT. The extra air cushion you added did help the ride I believe as the box was damaged through the PO. The color of the eggs were EXACTLY as described... a large- XL, terracotta red, Marans chart level 6 and level 7. Beautiful depth of color and some lightly speckled.

    The chicks have been very vigorous and healthy since day one. They joined in eating immediately with their older brothers and sisters- like little piglets at a trough, lol. They all have solid, chubby bodies, with nice, long, correctly angled backs. Only one chick had slight middle toe feathering- and that is terrific!

    Thank you so much for all of your time, honestly answering my many questions and concerns. Anyone seriously going into BCM should have questions, and you took the time to check your facts, and supply extra photos. I can't tell you how I appreciated that.

    Here's a photo of one of the chicks. If you would like more photos, just let me know.

    Brian, I candled the eggs today, 18 of the eggs are fertile. Very Good Fertility rate for shipped eggs. Hope they all hatch. Thanks, Greg
