    Dh bought a new flock of Delawares for me and I was really pumped up about them coming tomorrow.....

    Well we got a call from MMCM Hatchery telling us they didn't hatch and I have another week to wait.
    OH well, but i am a little bummed out. I have been taking care of DH's Black Copper chicks counting off the days until I get my Delaware chicks. But I have to wait another week.

    BUMMER!

    Cackle Hatchery called me yesterday and postponed my Delaware ship date, also - she said the Dellies weren't laying well right now.

    Must be the weather or something messing with laying and fertility.

    Seems funny, both hatcheries having the same problem. I'd say they have a problem with their suppliers of eggs.
