    I bought some BO eggs from Austin from Low Country Poultry and he sent them last Friday. Well they finally arrived this morning! I'm guessing that with Austin on one shore (Atlantic) and me on the other (Pacific) and both of us being not really near any LARGE cities it took longer than we both would have hoped!

    The eggs were beautifully wrapped and look great! They'll be going in the incubator late tonight! I've had the bator up and running for 4 days now just waiting! [​IMG]

    Here are some pics!

    Most interesting was the color on 3 of the eggs. A light pinkish hue to them. My daughter liked these the best! She thinks the chicks will be pink as well. [​IMG]

    Here you can see the difference in color.

    Thanks Austin!

    Eggs have sat for about 12 hours now, so they are now in the incubator! Looking forward for the next 21 days!! [​IMG]

    I too have eggs from Austin and have about 4 of the "Pink" ones!
    He did a great job packing them, I had two broken, but they weren't just cracked, they were mashed! Looked like the PO played football with the box. Have 13 of 15 in incubator. Today is day 3. Can't wait. Will buy more from Austin later on for sure!
