    I ordered 6 light sussex eggs and received 7. They shipped all the way from California to Virginia. Four of the seven had development. I kept them in the bator for two weeks then a hen went broody, so I put them under her. Due date to hatch was tomorrow, but DH just went out and checked and I have two babies so far with another pipped. WOOHOO!!!! I was so worried about these basically due to the money I paid for them, lol. I am very sick right now and I can't even go out and see them, but at least I know I have some beautiful babies. I will get pics as soon as I can.

    Thank you both for your well wishes and prayers. I have the worst ear infection ever. All my lymph nodes in my neck are swollen and extremely painful. Even on high powered pain meds, I am still in a lot of pain. Bargain, I would be glad to sell you eggs. Renee, I will get pics up as soon as I can. I may see if DH will take my camera out and take some, lol.
