This is what I came home to,

Cynthia did an expert job in making sure the eggs were shipped safely,

Each egg was individually wrapped in bubble wrap and was labeled by breed,

The eggs are all gorgeous, all 28 eggs made it across the US without even a scratch,

The eggs are settling now overnight, I'm going to put them in the incubator first thing tomorrow morning. I can't wait to start incubating!

That's what I thought! I had to fight to get those eggs out of their wrapping.

Cyn, I'm crossing my fingers for 100%

I'm so nervous for my first hatch! Thank you so much again for taking the time to collect those eggs for me.

IF there is one thing you'll learn about Cyn on these boards, it's that she loves all her birds, even those who have not yet hatched! It shows in everything she does, even her packaging!!

Good luck Jeremy, I'll be keeping track!!!

Cyn does an awesome packing job and I love that she knows what eggs each hen lays. I can kind of tell my BR's apart but the rest, no way.

Temps in the incubator are steady.

Waiting, waiting, waiting.

To my "Delaware Family", thanks for keeping track of my hatching journey!
Kristian, No Marans in there this time, just Heritage Delawares, Wheaten/Blue Wheaten Ameraucanas and a few Blue/Black/Splash Orpingtons.
There's lots of folks here on the forum with Marans, I'm sure you could find some for a reasonable price.
