    Congrats on your newest eggs! [​IMG] If my Whole Foods' eggs do not hatch, I'm looking at purchasing off Ebay for Jersey Giants!

    That's great! I'm going to keep an eye on this thread to check on your babies' development especially those JGs! I think I read that you should keep your mailed eggs out at room temp for 24 hours to help settle their innards.....

    Oh YAY! Welcome to the hatching world .... you will be addicted quickly!

    I just hatched some Jersey Giants from Wynette. She has BEAUTIFUL birds, and works hard with them, toward the (SOP) standard of perfection. Good luck with your hatch!

    What other eggs are you expecting? Are you going to have a staggered hatch?

    Woot! on hatching eggs! Hatching is every so addictive!

    Let your eggies settle for at least 12 hours, 24 is better. Fat end up. You'll find TONS of incubating information here on BYC! BEST of good hatching vibes coming your way!

    (Kathyinmo - thanks for your kind comments!)
