    I have Showgirl eggs in the incubator, this is my second batch, I'm really struggling with trying to get these little buggers to show signs of life. My number one Threat is the Post Office!!! Each batch that I have received has had loose air cells, I have tried to get them to sit without moving them for a few days and still no luck. I got 6 eggs the last time and none of them hatched, I put them under my girls, this second batch I'm trying in the incubator. I have already contact the person about this problem and she's ready to send me another batch. I JUST WANT TO HATCH ONE BABY..... AHHHHHHHHH I'm almost willing to travel 6 to 8 hours to pick up some eggs myself. At least I know I can try to avoid swearing by using the bad word "loose Air cells"....

    I'm so sorry about that, I don't trust the post office either. I like to pick up my eggs and see where they come from. Hopefully you can either pick them up or find a local breeder.
