    Well i ear that they can still hatch [​IMG] I'm using the Egg Carton Technique so they have a better chance at it. They are still setting at the moment.

    Good luck to you. My last batch of shipped eggs were totally scrambled - the ones that weren't broken. Probably would have helped if they didn't have totally awful packing....

    Oh how awful. But there is always hope. So let us know. I had a dream a few nights ago I got a box of hatching eggs and I opened box and they were all mashed to bits. Whew what a nightmare. Also I have no hatching eggs coming via mail either lol so odd dream huh ?

    Good luck .
