    I left home to go pic up my son from school and to mail MissPrissy's package and when I came home I had a box waiting for me. I was totally not expecting these!!!
    I had told sweetshoplady that I would test some eggs for her but it had been a long while since we had corresponded so I assumed my service were no longer needed. There were actually 18 eggs but 3 were broken [​IMG] You could tell the PO totally disregarded the "Fragile, This End Up" as the wet spot was located in the upper corner.

    My last chick just hatched out. There's still two in there but I don't think they are viable so in the morning I will clean, sanatize and set these eggs. [​IMG]

    I'm excited because I had 6 blue eggs in this last batch of eggs I hatched and none of them were fertile so I'm eggstatic I get to try again [​IMG]
