Ok so if it sounds to good to be true it probly is right. Heh. Ok I had a girl at the local feed store when I was asking about bators and eggs tell me oh I have a ton of chickens I can give you how ever many eggs you want. She has been busey so I finely got it lined up for a dozen eggs for pick up this morning fresh from yesterday , crossing my fingers that the eggs will be good in a week when Ill put them in my bator but hey free eggs why not right...... Double checked with her last night , walked down to the feed store this morning to pick them up . She is like ok thats five dollers last time I talked to her she was giveing them to me .. Ok fine five bucks for a dozen mutt eggs isnt that bad I guess. So I pay her and she gives me the eggs I start to leave and she is like oh grampa washed them thismorning so there ready to go in the bator , youre not sapose to wash eggs right so the hatchblitly of these jsut went down another notch right, Ok so I get htem home and candle them just for fun to see the air sack or whatever I can see befor I store them till they go in the bator. One is craked, I call her and say hey one is cracked she is like ill bring you another one tammorw , I go back to looking at the eggs, under the light another one has what looks like cracks running almost the enter lengh of the egg but its a tiny crack you cant see it if you look at the egg but you can see it if you candle. I call her back and she sounds kinda grumpy , Ok ill bring you two eggs tammrow to pick up, Took all my tact not to ask for her to make shure they not to be washed. They also look rather wierd when candled so Im off to hunt down pics So what do you guys think am I being picky? is this how egg saleing usually goes? what chance to the poor things have after being washed and then sat for about a week ?
