    [​IMG] We just got the Australorp eggs this morning!!!! WE are sooo excited! Unfortunately there was one broken, but that is pretty good considering how gently our beloved PO handles things [​IMG] .

    We did not get the EE eggs from the breeder that we were expecting to arrive today. Do you all think it would do harm to let these set until we get the EE eggs tomorrow??? Jess

    It should be fine to let them set but i dont know hold old they were when you got them. eggs can usually set for up to 2 weeks but i only let mine set for no more than 10 days.

    Yes, an extra day won't hurt them to rest. Sorry to hear about the one getting broken, but glad I added a couple xtra. That was a long flight for those poor eggies. Thanks for letting me know. Fingers crossed that they still do well for you. Good luck with your hatches.
