I CANT BELIEVE MY EYES! (remember the eggs that got lost in the mail)

    OMG I cant believe it! These eggs got lost in the mail and sent all over the place! It took them over a week and a half to get to me from 4 hours away! I thought for sure all hope was lost, but when I got them they look in really good shape. None of the air cells were ruptured and all the eggs were in tact. So I said what the heck and I put them in the bator. And would you believe that 12 of the 16 are growing! [​IMG] They were sent to me from Melanie (fluff n stuff). That just goes to show that she goes out of her way to pack these little ones extra good. And she even went and sent me more eggs because we thought for sure they would not make it after that trip! So now, I am going to have even more eggies. LOL Now I just have to make room for them all![​IMG] I just wanted to share my happy news! [​IMG]

    WOW JEN - You are going to have a lot of little fluffs running around.
    I am so happy for you. You will have to keep us posted on how many of the secound set of 16 develop.
    And if the hatches go well PICTURES ARE IN ORDER.

  10. That's amazing!
    Great job packaging and incubating (and nothing short of a miracle that as many times as the box was loaded and unloaded, it didn't get ruined).
