    I wanted something to do with the older birds. We had a trio that produced 36 offspring and we wanted to control production so we cut off supply. I will now reduce the teenagers down to ten or so. Bernie can sell them off.

    With a bit of luck we will hatch pekins rouens and welsh harlequins in 25 days.

    Lock down tomorrow on our first non-shipped eggs laid by the chickens from my Christmas eggs.

    They will go a long way to helping understand our hatching technique.

    I like the idea of the pipe but not a fan of egg cartons. The best shipping I have received was actually from pigglett with eggs in pipe insulation. I think that if you took pigletts method and had some thin plywood inserts on the inside of the box to prevent crush you would have the perfect shipping.

    As oz post uses bags,the pipes with eggs in pipe insulation would be brilliant

    I thought the same thing, like 3" pipes on end with the insulation inserted. 2 eggs per with penuts in between and on the ends.......and make a 6 pack of tubes taped together..............Wonder if that would fit in a priority shipping box..[​IMG]
