    After the last trip - I want to maximize egg viability/space ratios.

    I want to just take eggs Laid on after the 19th for local eggs and on or after the 20th for shipped eggs.

    I need to get my hatch rate to a prime level.

    In addition to the chicken eggs

    I have:
    Cotournix - Texas A&M
    Turkey - Blue Slate
    Turkey - Bourbon Red
    PeaFowl - India Blue mixes
    Guinea Fowl - White
    Geese - African and Tolouse

    i'm always up for shipping eggs to ya mate
    what day do need them to leave the east coast?
    is it a monday again?
    i can send the freshest eggs
    & on the next trip i can do the same
    that way you can get plenty of breeding pairs or trios

    come sept. i plan to stop hatching till Jan 1st
    so at that point you can have a couple dozen a week ...or more
    if you want to try hatching out some at casa-OZ
