    I got buff orp eggs from bamachicken. The post office must have had a field day with them. Two were cracked and the rest must have been scrambled. I have only one developing egg. Need lots of good luck to get this little one to hatch next week! [​IMG]


    Good news though.. my broody is out there clucking to at least one brand new baby. I wasn't expecting those eggs to hatch until later this week.

    My first bator experience started Friday night. Despite leaving both my wife and my cell numbers with the post office- they did the "nice" thing and dropped them off- sat on our porch for hours since neither of us were home. Good luck, Keystonepaul

    Quote:I know it! My nice postal lady brought them to me, and told me to check them because they came to the PO in a big sack with the rest of the mail. I assume the ride was just too rough.



    Good news though, I checked my lone egg last nught and it was moving. I'm [​IMG] praying it hatches Thursday.
