    Well, wish me luck. I received 9 blue orp eggs from the famous Skye and Velvet this morning. Speckled Hen sent them so well packaged that even if they threw the box they wouldn't have broken! If I ever ship eggs I will do like she did...

    Good luck with those, Carrie! Glad they arrived intact. [​IMG] Just wish Miss Velvet hadn't been on her little Diva trip this week, LOL.

    Thanks, Cyn. I have twenty set in a different bator- yesterday was day 1 for them. I will count tomorrow as day 1 for the blue orp eggs. My birthday is April 19 and I will have lots of eggs hatching that week!
    Good luck to you, Tuffoldhen!
    I now want all the orps I can get. LOL I hope I get pullets since Cyn's shipped eggs seem to put out pullets and she keeps the cockerals. [​IMG] Seriously, though, I do hope I get one cockeral only.
    Isn't spring great?

    Carrie, you did find that envelope in the box, didn't you? I hope you get ALL pullets! I won't even get mad if you get a splash pullet! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Sorry, Cyn, I was away from the computer. That is a hoot...I hope I get a splash how great would that be??? [​IMG]
    Yes, thank you I did get the envelope. I should have told you but was too excited over the eggs.

    Man I gotta get some of those Blue Orp eggs sometime later this summer. They look so nice I am in envey every time you all post those pics of them. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I got a broody Pheonix hen sitting on a 10 egg assortment and bought 6 more EE's yesterday at the feed store to go with the rest of my now 44 chickens.

    Hey, Ozark,
    I set some of Cyn's Orp eggs, too - they're on day 6 today. I can't wait to candle! The PO took forever getting them to me, so I hope they didn't kill them all!!! [​IMG] I'm really sorry, but I got all of the splash pullet eggs!!! They will go beautifully with the black cockerel I already have! [​IMG] We'll have to compare pics once they hatch!!!

    Good luck with your hatch and you, too, Tuff!!!

    watch it there Lori, I will have to wish real hard for you to get all cockerals............ [​IMG]
    This is so cool, we will have to keep in touch to see what all we each get!!
    Now I saw a thread on here somewhere that a hatchery is selling white orps. I think I might get in on that too. ha ha I want to see if I can get all the different colored orps. I have five buff orps right now and love those chickens. I cannot wait to see what I get when the eggs hatch. I only have two blue giant cochins as roos here. I assume they are both blue. When I bought the chicks one was suppose to be blue and one black but they look the same to me! [​IMG]

    Cyn does a great job of packing doesn't she?! You're right the PO could have used my box as a basketball and I think they would have been fine. [​IMG]

    Good luck with your hatch!
