    I got an incubator several days ago and set it up to make sure everything was stable. During this time, I have been trying to make up my mind as to where I should get eggs. I hear so much about eggs being damaged in the mail. I wanted to pick up eggs in person if I could. Today I fell into 2 great deals. Both from BYCers that live very close to me. One of them had sold me the chickens that I have right now. I went to visit today to ask if she knew anyone that would sell me some eggs to test the new bator. She said she would sell me a dozen, but most of them would be Yokahamas with a few brown egg layers. She let me have them for 10 bucks! When I got home, there was a PM here from the other lady that I had talked to about eggs, saying she had 2 dozen Easter Eggers if I wanted them. 27 bucks for them. All 36 are in the incubator right now. This has been a wonderful day. [​IMG]

    I hope each of you have had one just as good.

    I wish I was that brave. My one and only shipped egg experience didn't end well. WIll have to try again though if I want that breed.
