Oz- wishing you safe travels tomorrow. Enjoy time with your family! We'll be here when you get back!
logistics are my problem now. 36 hours to take off and I have to work some. Let me see if I can work something out.
Oz have you ever tried incubating eggs for 3-5 days before shipping? I read about that somewhere here. It's supposed to help stablize the aircells and apparently the embryos sort of go dormant until they get warmed up again. I would imagine that as long as they don't get too hot or too cold (and I don't remember them saying anything about what those temps would be) that it just might work.
Might be something to experiment with if you are able to work it out.
i think OZ should just bring a hen with him on the plane
that way the eggs never get cold
I have read about that as well. It seems that eggs can tolerate one drop in temperature but from what I read, if I remember correctly, it has to get down to 60-65F and stay there. Next time I will give it a try. I will have to put a couple of frozen hams in the golf bag
she'd have to be the size of an emu to cover all the eggs he's been taking ;-)
I am eggcited, mrs Oz is eggcited and the kids are counting sleeps till I get there
I tried to find one of the sales reps that call on me from Sandy Eggo to ferry them up in the morning. No luck.Next time its all about the pretty chickens and eggs
Successful delivery of eggs to OZ!!
Bye OZ safe travels!!
