    I heard the mail truck stop out on the road and new something was in it for me!!! Last week I got an order of eggs from a seller on ebay...I bought 15 eggs they sent 20. But 10 of those were cracked or broken. I saved 4 of them with the candle wax method and asked the seller if they would send me the 10 eggs that broke. They said if you pay 5 bucks for shipping we will send you 10 more eggs....well they sent 20 and one of the eggs is WHITE which I think might be kind of uncommon in cortunix eggs. And then I bought 15 more eggs from a different seller on ebay and those also arrived...only 1 broken. So here are some pics...letting them set before I place them in the incubator. I also have 14 eggs already in there that I set yesterday.
    Thanks yall!!
