I tried to incubate and hatch shipped eggs, and was very disappointed. So for now I am going to stick with local. Maybe I just didn't do something right, but it was so hard to throw away those eggs that I spent a lot of money on. I cracked some open, and they died in various stages of development. I had some local eggs in with them , and they hatched fine so... Thanks for your offer -- it's very kind of you -- I'm just not ready for such disappointment so soon again !
