    That is what we're calling the eggs that just came all the way cross country. Thanks Fallen Weeble! Yup, California to Connecticut, in one day. The PO called me to let me know they were here. They kept them safe and sound on a very cold rainy day. They are now resting comfortably after their long journey! [​IMG]

    we'll keep our fingers crossed that you've got some good eggs there.
    it's funny to see my own handwriting on them . . .

    I want to be the first to say I hope you wrote with a pencil, pen can ruin a egg. BLAH BLAH BLAH...[​IMG]

    Quote:Now I can sleep at night, but the hope that was pencil has to be posted anytime you see writing on an egg. or it wouldnt be a proper egg post, now fire up the bator, and start the countdown.

    Possibly a silly question:(I know me silly??) Does serayama (-1sp) take same amount of time as regular chicken to incubate?? I am assuming yes, but not sure anything I read says they are harder to bate, is it just hardyness of egg, or is there more to it
