    OK, I can't remember all the results perfectly but here is what I remember clearly:

    9 Delawares from Shortcake1806
    5 BLRW and 10 Barred Rocks from Barnyard
    11 Buff Orps from hinkjc
    8 BLRW and 6 SS from Katy
    3 BLRW, 5 Cuckoo Marans, and all but one of the BR and BO eggs from Pumpkinpup (I believe there are 5 good ones).
    11 SS from The Farmers Wife (Gabbard Farms)

    I candled the RIR's from TatersChickens and it looked like most were doing good, but for some reason they didn't look as far along as the rest (weird, but I've had it happen with my own eggs vs some I got from MissPrissy and they all caught up by the end of incubation), so I will wait a few days and candle them again.

    So far so good! Better than what I had expected with so many shipped eggs!

    Quote:I'm on day 10 on all but the eggs from Barnyard and Pumpkinpup- those are on day 9, so I guess you are right, I'm about half way there!

    I was hoping for better than that with mine, but I guess it could have been worse. [​IMG] that they all make it to hatch!!

    I'll keep you posted. I will candle again when I take them off the turners next Monday and Tuesday. Then I'll really be pacing the floor.

    Looking good Jared. So 9 out of the 11 that survived the trip are growing. That's not too bad.
