    Ok the story.... I bought eggs on ebay. The chickens in question looked super nice. They were from the Dan Powell lines. So I was VERY EXCITED TO WIN THEM. Well now this morning I got emails for 2 people telling me that the seller has sick chickens and they have changed their name a number of times and even opened up a new ebay account to hide who they are..... sighhhhh I have these eggs in my incubator almost ready to hatch. Now I`m being told to trash them, get rid of them..... because a year ago these people had sick birds. What do I do? Can it carry though the egg? Should I trash them? I have almost 2 dozen ready to hatch. I don`t want to risk my other chickens. I have never had any disease`s so I don`t know what to do. Please help me.
