    Folks, I sent a small, Priority box of Silver Penciled Plymouth Rock hatching eggs to member birdbrain5 - shipped out to North Carolina on Wednesday, expected delivery was Saturday.

    Well....long story short, they are in Honolulu! Zip 96820, phone (808) 423-3917.

    Delivery confirmation number is 0310 0480 0000 5770 2120

    Anyone in Honolulu interested in hatching these eggies? I seriously doubt there will be takers, but thought it best to give it a try rather than wasting the eggs!

    Anyone interested, shoot me a PM.

    And.... [​IMG] about the post office. Sigh.............

    ETA: I know they aren't perfect - the post office has been great so far for me this year, and I guess I shouldn't complain!

    The post office in Hawaii will return them to you if you marked them as hatching eggs if you did not have the proper permits. All boxes usually go through a quarantine facility and are checked......

    What a weird mistake for the post office to make. I really hope your eggs find their way to an incubator...

    I never mark my boxes as "hatching eggs" or "embryos" or anything like that, Jean - I find that it often is taken as an invitation of sorts to some postal workers, so I just use "this end up - fragile" stickers on each side. Sigh....

    Thanks, Chooks - I'll find it quickly!

    Quote:Yea, the guy at the post office this morning, when I checked in with them directly, said he'd never seen a Priority box go THAT far off the beaten track! Oh well. Not much I can do now, but hope they make their way to a bator! [​IMG] I know the chances are slim, but I HAD to try!

    I believe the OP is in Michigan. Heck Wynette, if they are in Hawaii, by the time they send them back, they will be half way incubated! [​IMG] What a cluster-muss!
