    Well, I am due to receive a box of eggs from Miss Jayne this week sometime, a mix of turkey, duck, and chicken eggs!!! I thought I would start a thread to keep Miss Jayne and everyone else updated on my success (I hope!!!). The other winners can join me if they want to![​IMG]

    I got my eggs today! THANK YOU MISS JAYNE!!! Twelve eggs, nicely wrapped, and none broken. They are resting on the counter, they were cold, but probably not quite refrigerator cold. My girls are happily playing with the bubbles. Those duck eggs are huge!

    I have some similar eggs in my incubator! [​IMG] No turkey eggs, though. Congrats - I'm glad your eggs arrived safely! Praying you have a successful hatch! [​IMG]

    I had to build a new bator, because my Silkies are supposed to start hatching today. I did have an early hatcher-last night a little white Silkie hatched!
    [​IMG]
    Here are Miss Jayne's eggs in the bator. There are 6 designer chicken eggs-all shapes and colors, even a green one!
    There are 4 duck eggs-they are huge and dirty! Are duck eggs always that dirty?
    There are also 2 Bourbon Red turkey eggs-they have the prettiest eggs!

    ducks get muddy in the thaw of spring. and they like to share it with their eggs! [​IMG]

    when it is dry, no, the eggs are nice and decently clean.
