    Well, soon anyway. [​IMG] I have two shipments of eggs shipping Monday. My "dream" will seem boring and tame to some, I am sure, but here goes. I FINALLY won an auction for some Blue Laced Red Wyandotte eggs. I am jumping up and down!!!! That is the one chickie I feel I just can't live without. [​IMG] I am also getting a surprise assortment that can include pure bred chickies of these types: Silkies (NEED at least one for my 11 y/o), EE's, Frizzle and Smooth Cochin's, Mille Fleur D'Uccle's, and BTW Japanese Bantams (WHAT is that???????). So, needless to say, I am pretty stoked about this upcoming hatch!!!! Wish me luck!!!!!!!!

    Now I'm mad!! LOL. I bid on some eggs from the same seller last week, and I bid $22 for the 6+. The auction ended when I was at work, and I lost!! And you won them for $7 this time!!!! Grrrr. LOL

    I shouldnt be greedy though lol, I have BLRW on order from someone different too.

    Those are some fine birds you're getting. That seller is a member of the BLRW yahoo group, as well.

    Glad you are getting some or I MIGHT feel the slightest twinge of guilt. Note the word MIGHT!!!! LOL They do look beautiful. I watched the auction until the end and lucked out.....only one bid and it was for the minimum. I used to be the worlds best sniper, but I have become less brave. I bid with over a minute left. There was a time when I would have been ashamed if I left 4 seconds!!!!!!

    Keep us all posted, I'm curious as to how well other e-bayers eggs hatch.

    Will do. I am really nervous about shipped eggs, but don't havea choice if I want some of these. Fingers crossed for all of us!!!!​

    Cool!!! I will get over there as soon as I get mine started. [​IMG] I am hoping the post office gets them here quick.....so they will be started SOON!!! Look forward to everyone's hatching experiences. [​IMG] Or, see who pulls themselves bald first!!! LOL This is gonna be cool because my hubby will be here shortly after these hatch and get to experience new baby chickies for the first time (military and doesn't get to live with us right now). He is really excited and doesn't care what kind they are. [​IMG] Does anyone know what the BTW Japanese Bantams are?
