Well... I just received some much anticipated hatching eggs, and unfortunately they didn't travel too well. Out of 20 eggs, only 9 arrived unscathed. One was smashed completely and four more were leaking goo. Another six were cracked but didn't seem to be too badly bashed. I figured if the membranes were intact that they were perhaps salvageable, so I've taken a chance and patched them up with candle wax. Time will tell... A nasty sight: One on the right: tossed. One on the left: patched up. Fingers crossed for the walking wounded: The person who sent me them said he wasn't sure what fertility would be like, as his roo is in the middle of a full-on moult. Having had the chance to examine half a dozen yolks, I now know that his fears are unfounded and fertility is looking very good. Lots of nice bullseyes in the burst eggs. I'm trying to see this as a good thing! Wish me luck!
