    I just want to say... I ordered a dozen eggs from Okiehen after my friend lost her beloved Blue Andalusian roo... I was hoping to surprise her with a new one. The eggs came in at the beginning of this month and 1) they were beautifully packaged (though I was scared they'd gotten too cold at first because my post office is dumb) and 2) beautifully labeled as BA for blue/black/splash and BA Blue for one that she knew would hatch pure blue.

    The last chick is halfway through hatching right now, and I just want to take a moment to brag on Okiehen's stock and say I have a full dozen chicks and they are gorgeous. One hundred percent fertility in the eggs and beautiful chicks popping out left and right... couldn't be happier. After the shipping disasters of last year, I'm totally geeked my first hatch of this year went so amazingly and with such little effort.

    And since everyone can use a dose of cute, here's the first 6 of them drying off in the food dish [​IMG]

    resting in the food dish = very smart move. Makes it easier to find the food for quick pick-me-ups. Too cute. I hope one is just what you wanted for your friend.

    Thanks!

    And I have no idea if Okiehen ships to other countries but considering the hassle it is to move poultry between countries I'm gonna guess no.

    There are people who do send things overseas... perhaps make a thread asking if there is anyone who will ship to you? I know there was someone who got a couple dozen shipped to.... I want to say korea or thailand or something, so I know there are people who do ship to other countries.
