    A pity you can't take them pack to the Phillipines.
    You could try a pair of Budgie Smugglers.

    We have a chicken. 1 out, 1 close. 3 other pips

    5 from 12 hatched all within 7 hrs of the first pip.

    The remaining 4 will stay in the bator till day 22. its barely day 20 now. Realistically, I dont expect any more to be kicking out. I am happy with that given the fact that they arrived in an egg carton with some paper towel between them.

    This helps reassure me that 24 eggs is the minimum for shipped eggs I want to carry for each breed for my main flock to build fairly quickly, and 12-18 be the minimum for breeds that I want to play with and see how they fair in the tropics.
