    I just got eggs in the mail 2 days ago. I candled them but they were darker so I couldn't see through them. Today I heard Boom like a firecracker look in the bator and one of those eggs had exploded:( Now I have to clean up the mess and hope the rest are ok.

    Were those the ones that were delayed? I hope you got your other shipment that you were waiting for...

    Quote:Yes, they were. I think the heat during shipping must have damaged them:( They did come from a BYC person but I really don't feel it is her fault.

    Got the mess cleaned up and most of the other eggs look ok to me. I did find one bad one and got rid of it before it explodes also.[​IMG] I really wanted those chicks so I hope I can at least get a couple to hatch. I know being in the mail so long didn't help them.

    Quote:5 days. I had some others in the mail that long and they were fine but it was cooler weather then. I think these got cooked in the mail as I found one that was stinky and not yet broken so I took it outside and broke it to see and it looked like a nasty hard boiled egg:( Yuck!
