    I live in Thailand . While on my last trip home (USA) I ordered 12 hatching eggs from a hatcher in OH. and smuggled them back into Thailand in my luggage . I had 5 eggs hatch . I was happy with that aLL things considered . I hand raised them . After they feathered out 8 weeks I tried to introduce two of them into the free ranging flock . The next day they were dead . How can I do this properly .
