    I would have to say the egg carton hatching method does work quite well. IMO I had a 70% hatch rate and mind you that these eggs were in shipping for 3 days w/ temps in the teens at night and 20's during the day. I ended up with 8 blrw (from blisschick) and 10 blue andalusians (from E-bay).
    I post a pic of all of them later today.
