    No, if my address is used, it goes to my post office, but they didn't write my address, they looked up the actual post office address and didn't have my physical address anywhere on the box. Why would they go through the trouble to find an address different than the one I gave them?

    I'm so glad your daughter was home! That is frustrating!!! That's why I love the fact that ALL boxes are held at my P.O.. I have a remote mail box and there is nowhere to leave a package, so everything is held. But if they request I be called, they will call me. For other boxes I get a little green card saying there is a package waiting for me.

    What kind of eggs did you get? I got Fly-tyer chickens. I was surprised that they are bantam eggs. I didn't realize they were bantams. Pretty eggs though!

    The bantam egg my broody was over is now on day 23/24 so I removed, candled and confirmed it to be a quitter. She is now sitting on a day 10 egg (her "backup" egg). This egg is from a Rosecomb Bantam and La Bresse mixed hen and the rooster is an Easter Egger. Because it's only 1 egg I started another backup batch in the incubator now on day 3. Eggs in backup batch #2 are: 5 from a Red Ranger hen, 1 from a Cuckoo Marans hen and 1 from a Black Copper Marans/Black Australorp mixed hen. Rooster is an Easter Egger.

    Hmm, apparently someone doesn't understand the process of shipping/hold at PO. :(

    I just candled some of my day 18 eggs, lock down tomorrow!! I pulled 2 of the Polish and 1 D'Uccle. I think 1 of the BCM's looked clear, but I left it in since I really couldn't see for sure.... Since I pulled 2 D'Uccle from the ones I candled on day 15, that leaves 21 D'Uccle, and 4 polish due to lock down tomorrow. Some of the eggs are already starting to draw down, so I'm hopeful they will all hatch! I'll candle all of them as I put them into lockdown.

    Happy hatching everyone!

    Slowly Losing it......
    [​IMG] Congrats on getting some babies out of the eggs. I'm super happy for you.

    Sounds like a colorful bunch.

    Address it to the person. Put "Hold For Pickup" on the address label and include a phone number for the post office to call.

    What does it mean when you say the eggs have started to draw down? I want to be up on all of my terms. :)
