    i bought 48+ serama eggs to hatch from someone. they sent me 60 eggs, [​IMG]i was so tickled!! 1 egg was cracked upon arrival no biggie. i was amazed at the pack job it was awesome!! took me an hour to unwrap them with all the bubbles and shreaded paper and towels.

    i have to check calander to see how many days they r on now. well dh decided to candle tonight just for an idea how many were fertile. i was putting some newly hatched babies in a brooder trying to keep the others from picking on them and watching over them. he says "well 10" i said [​IMG] out of 60 eggs only 10 fertile, my heart sunk there goes nothing i'll probably only get 1-2 ta hatch i'm thinking. i was so heart broken. my jaw almost hit the floor i was so disapointed. [​IMG]

    he cracks up laughing and says nope only 10 clear. [​IMG] my word can u imagine 59 eggs not only made it through ship from another state but 50 of those little buggers got babies in them!! [​IMG] i'm excited now and dieing to see how my hatch goes!! [​IMG]

[​IMG] i want her to have her own flock so i'm really looking forward to hatch. right now she is the only serama i have. i'll have to post pics of her she looks totally different now and is very pretty but i don't know what color she is, never seen her pattern before.

    my eggies r in the hatcher. they should be hatching tomarrow or the next day!!! [​IMG] one was cracked and we repaired it soon as we opened them. it has a baby growing great in it so keep ur fingers crossed. if i rremember right we removed 9 clears out of 60 eggs.
