    Hey guys i just recieved a shipment of 9 bantam size white eggs some didnt make it , but what im wondering about is who this is and why i got eggs from them .... some eggs are marked by date some are not . som dates say 7-18-10 , 8-18-10 , and others are blank .....

    This is funny to me since i was not expecting eggs for one , and for two this name is not in the user list nor have i participated in any trades swaps or chains do to the fact my birds are not laying and i have 3 sets of eggs awaiting to be delivered upon being layed .... and the shipping date on the package is 8-17-10 and some of the eggs are marked 8-18-10 ...

    So im just wondering what is up with these eggs , do i , should i even think about putting them in the incubator or what .....

    the name on the box is

    Boettcher , ive never seen that name as far as i can remember at all , the hand writing of the sender address is totally different than the hand writing on the sending address as well

    the eggs were packed with plastic grocery bags and nestled in a cardboard egg carton and wrapped in papertowels .. some of the eggs didnt make it tho

    How odd!!! I have received eggs with similar markings the seller said it was to identify the bird which laid the egg not the date so maybe its the same thing just coincidental that it matched recent dates. Hope you solve the mystery [​IMG]
  3. Hi! Could they be from this member? She mentions Baker City, OR in that post.
    Good luck!
