    I ordered NHR on ebay from a very relibale source. Unfortuneately USPS was not so reliable. A Priority package took 10 days to get from AR to GA. This package went from AR to Detroit with FEDEX in an airplane, from there to Bahia de Caraquez/Ecuador - sent back to Detroit, to Nashville and finally to Chattanooga according to the labels on the package. The Priority Mail package was labeled correctly and it arrived at my home in a condition I never thought those eggs are still OK. They were ice cold and I let them reached room temperature for almost 12 hours und put them in my incubator. Today is day 7 and guess what: out of 12 eggs 10 have jumping chick babies in it. Isn't that a real miracle? I am so happy!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That is funny stuff, good luck on the hatching, although it seems you are destined to succeed.

    Those eggs have seen the world [​IMG]
