    thanks alot, sad thing is when I go and do my supper dishes in a few minutes the eggs are right by my sink!! Here I go with the flashlight looking to see if there are any pips yet. I know on day 18 when I quit turnning them there were babies wiggling in the eggs we bought the eggs off ebay.
    there were 18 delaware, now I have 14 1 was cracked and 3 were clear on day 7 but i let them stay to day 14 and the 3 were still clear. so I took them out. I am hoping I get at least 5 or six I would be happy.

    That is where we got our Delawares. We had a very good hatch rate and the birds
    are awesome. We had no problems with aggressiveness and they are super friendly.
    Her and I have emailed back and forth a few times. Great Egg Vendor. I'm surprised
    she isn't a member here.
