    My mid-eighties FIL graduated from Univ. of Delaware many years ago, and still follows his "Fightin' Blue Hens" closely. He was tickled no end when he found out I had ordered Delaware Blue eggs from fellow BYC'er Bec, just for him. So here's to you, Dad!

    The eggs arrived today, beautiffuly and carefully packed. Twelve DB's, and a variety pack of EE's, Orps, and RIR, all sired by a Partridge Cochin. Not a single egg was even cracked.

    The grand opening- Bec's daughter made a special drawing just for me and it is now on the wall above the incubator.

    Dogs and cats had to sniff test it all first-

    Incredibly good packing job, 5 year old daughter kissed each bubble wrapped egg for luck! [​IMG]

    Ready for the incubator!

    My huge-amongous THANKS to Bec for the pretty eggs, and to K. for the lucky kisses and drawing of us on the swings! [​IMG]


    If all goes as planned, they should hatch April first! April Fools to go with the Mardi Gras babies hatched on Fat Tuesday!

    I know, I just posted in another thread about it- I whispered, so I wasn't hijacking. [​IMG]

    What are you hatching?
