    MissPrissy sent me a dozen BBS Orp eggs and a bag of yeast culture that she so generously offered me.

    Box was in good condition- no smashed corners:

    There is the yeast starter with instructions:

    The eggs were wrapped well:

    And in a few hours they will be ready to go in the incubator!

    Buster, your destined to have a phenominal hatch!

    I hatched some of MP's BBSO's a few weeks ago and they were one of my best hatches yet. Not to mention they are super sweet, beautiful and healthy chickies. [​IMG]

    Oh...and what's a yeast culture? What's it for? Sorry to go off topic...but I'm seriously intrigued [​IMG] I mill the flour and make all of our bread, it would be cool to use a natural yeast! Please PM me if this is too off topic.

    I think getting a box from MissPrissy is even more exciting than getting one from Santa.

    Sorry, Santa.

    I was expecting there to be some wheat flour in there too. Heck you're most of the way to making some bread, no? [​IMG]
