    With just the Pekin Duck and Dorkin eggs meeting me at the airport and 12 golden seabright bantams coming USPS tomorrow, the easter egg run is almost ready

    Today I received an extremely poorly packaged 2 dozen turkens that was a box of scrambled yellow goop. Maybe 8 egs not broken.

    I was refunded with an apology.

    Another set of lavender orps and sizzle/silkies was filthy. The orps were covered in mud the silkies in poop. I emailed the seller - her response was, we live in a wet area. I suggested she improve her coop or stop selling bad eggs.

    Apart from those hiccups I did very well. I managed to pick up 9 Silver Penciled Rocks from La Palma Chick at the last minute and Poulettes silkie eggs are pristine. 90+ coturnix - half texas A&M white look exciting. I lost one lavender orp to breakage but with the muddy one I have 12. Piglet sent 2 doz of his huge buff orps and i got 15 local lemon cuckoo orp eggs. I even got 7 pure Brittish BBS orps and 26 Australorps as well as the dark cornish.

    Not a bad haul. Tomorrow will be work for 4 hrs, find passport, pack eggs and high tale it to LAX

    Time to sleep fast

    This is a great idea, bad execution.

    Instead of laying them down in the box as shown, they need to be stood on end so the the fat end is up.
