    Good morning, goose friends. :)

    Sue, congrats on the internal pip!! What is the latest update?

    Erin/Celtic/Marty: I did not get my eggs yesterday, but I am on the look out for them to arrive today.

    I checked my eggs without spiders this morning. Still not seeing veining on the one toulouse that I thought I saw veining on a few days ago, but it appears to be developing. Is it possible that the embryo is in center of egg and I cannot see it?

    As of today, I have 6 clear spiders and 2 hopefuls. Best hope now is to have 8 total (4 each) to develop.... but I'm happy with the 6 developing goosies even if the last two do not get into gear.

    Have two boxes of eggs in transit somewhere. One set from Erin the others are Sebbie. Neither will arrive today even though they should have. Will be Monday before I see them. Called the PO just to make sure they weren't there.

    DARN IT!! Celtic, after I read your last post I checked the tracking for my eggs. It is doing the same thing as your last set. It shows that it left the acceptance post office for the local IL sorting office.... then nothing.

    Iain, seems the PO system is hit and miss with the tracking lately. 5 boxes here 4 coming 1 going. 2 boxes never have updated at all. Those are the 2 not here today. I was going to be pushing it getting them picked up. With hubby still at the hospital and we have customers today at the farm.

    Pall of our hatching eggs are held at the PO for pick up so they aren't in the truck bouncing all day.

    I don't know what is happening. My local post office scans every single shipment when received, so I think it is highly unlikely that the eggs will get here today.

    Squishy is still rocking... I've been out all day with just quick stops in the house. Hubby said he thought he heard something earlier. I'm not to worried at this point... the Guide say upto 24 hours so I'll worry more after dark[​IMG]


    It's a shame you guys are having so much trouble with the egg shipments... hope they all arrive unscrambled[​IMG]

    Marty1876 Hi Everyone!

    Hi Celtic and Iain. [​IMG] I guess this means I'm the only one with eggs. Do you want me to wait until Monday to sit them?? We are a trio...

    Marty, I would go ahead and set them, as I worry that fertility goes down with every day they sit around. Celtic is the expert though, and she may say it's ok to wait until Monday.
