    I am so excited. I can't wait to see the chicks. Figured I would wait to put them in the incubator until tonight. Maybe they need to settle a little. I think they are a gorgeous color. I really didn't know they came in such lovely colors. Just look at the olive green ones. And that dark brown one. Guess I thought all eggs were either light brown or white. Anyone else starting any today?

    Here's a photo of the beautiful eggs that came today:

    Quote:I DID get them from siz8003. They were packed perfect!! No broken ones at all. The light blue one is almost the color of a robins egg. I hope you will keep in touch. It will be nice to show off the chicks as they hatch!!! Can't wait.

    Hehe, that's awesome! I didnt get any broken ones either - they were packed so nicely! They were barely even cold! I candled them before I put them in the bator, and I really only had concern for 3 of them - 2 had weird air pockets, and one looked kind of scrambled, but I couldnt really tell - I had a basset hound poking me trying to get me to play while I was doing it!

    I was surprised at the colours for some reason...I was the same- expecting brown/white...It made my day to see there were some pretty green ones too [​IMG]

    I'm hoping that at least 2 hatch! Im not going to get my hopes up that most will hatch...so maybe if I just say 2, there will be a good portion to hatch? reverse phsycology! lol

    and I think all the crazy chicken owners from this website have rubbed off on me...I already have 21 chickens between 2 coops, and the lone bantam named Gertrude...
    Along with these 24 eggs, and 15 bantams on the way [​IMG]

    Hey Chubbydog, we must be related because our avatars look like eachother. Is that a Haflinger?

    haha, I noticed that a while ago, but never mentioned it!
    And yes, he is a haflinger! I got in November, and unfortunately, have only ridden him 3 times! Not fair! lol...
    I have another Haffy, and 9 other horses too... [​IMG]
