    I am glad they survived if they were shipped that way.

    Hooray! I have the 9 Ameraucauna bantam and 8 Golden Campine bantams that I set last Wednesday, and 7 assorted Orpingtons from My Pet Chicken. I had the incubators in my breezeway, which is air conditioned, but apparently not well enough. The first set of eggs got up to 104 twice. I was afraid they were all dead. However out of the 17, I saw embryos in 11!!!! I just set the Orpingtons last night. One had a detached air cell, but the others looked okay. I also have a dozen Rhode Island Red bantam eggs arriving tomorrow.

    Real Ameraucana or EE? The ones I bought last year said Ameraucana but they were obviously EE after they hatched (some had yellow skin) but they were still beautiful with very pretty blue eggs.
